Job Description for Sports Reporter

A sports reporter covers one or more sports for a media outlet or other publication. They generally attend sporting events and gather information about the game, statistics, players and other pertinent areas that would be relevant to report to sports fans; they then compile that information and present it to their audience in a print, online, audio and/or video format. It is important for sports reporters to ensure that the information they collect is accurate and interesting to their intended audience. They also generally strive to "break" news, staying in front of a story to report timely information to their audience.
