Whether you're on a picnic bench listening to the game on a portable radio...or sitting in your den watching the big-screen TV...the voice that transports you out of your everyday life into the stands is that of the sportscaster. The fan asks, “How do they do it?” The student asks, “How do I get there?”

To answer these questions, experienced sportscaster and teacher Tom Hedrick offers THE ART OF SPORTSCASTING. This no-holds-barred, play-by-play manual on professional sportscastinggives you an inside course at the sportscaster’s challenges and victories. The advice and coaching cover the gamut of skills and training from voice, preparation, play-by-play, interviewing techniques, audition tapes, writing and production skills, to dressing and behaving in a professional manner and acquiring requisite people skills. The only other thing the aspiring sportscaster needs is a good share of luck—and Hedrick even includes some advice on that!

Over 91 top-notch sports broadcasting personalities contributed interviews for THE ART OF SPORTSCASTING, including Curt Gowdy, Ray Scott, Bob Costas, Jack Buck, Jim Nantz, Keith Jackson, Bob Starr, Joe Castiglione, Kevin Harlan, and Mitch Holthus. Their “insider stories” not only entertain, but they also itemize the do’s and don’ts of getting started in sports broadcasting, give you the tips that only a “friend in the business” can provide, and outline the strong personal values and philosophies that are andhave been essential to their success and to the journey there.

Featuring a special chapter on baseball broadcasting by Joe Castiglione, Voice of the Boston Red Sox.
