Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a sports broadcaster do?

Sports broadcasters analyze a variety of sporting events and present information to a targeted audience. They describe actions and plays as they happen, update scores, and gather facts and statistics to present them in an interesting way. They often give views a “play-by-play” of events as they are taking place. They often inject personal opinions, comical comments, or lighthearted views on the game or event. Sports broadcasters often select, write, and present sports coverage on television and radio stations as well as on the Internet. Often times they provide coverage before and after the game or event. Sports broadcasters often go behind the scenes and provide insider information. They interview coaches, athletes, medical personnel, celebrities, and fans.

What kind of training does a sports broadcaster need?

Sports broadcasters usually need at least a bachelor degree in journalism, broadcasting, communications, or related field. Sports broadcasters typically complete courses in sports and cultures, sports psychology, sport and gender, exercise physiology, and coaching principles. Many aspiring sports broadcasters complete internships at radio stations, television stations, and local and school newspapers while completing their degree to gain hands-on experience. Some sports broadcasters pursue fellowships or graduate degrees to become more competitive in the field. They must keep up to date on advancements in the field and often complete continuing education throughout their careers.

What are the prospects for a career as a sports broadcaster?

Employment of sports broadcasters is expected to have little or no change, increasing 2% from 2006 to 2016 (1). The increase in sports advancements will create some job growth.

Job prospects are expected to be fair with keen competition for positions in large broadcast stations and networks, newspapers, and magazines. The best opportunities will be with small broadcast stations and publications. Sports broadcasters with extensive experience will have the best job prospects.

How much do sports broadcasters make?

As of October 2009, sports broadcasters with 1 to 4 years experience earned average annual salaries between $25,055 and $59,915. Those with 5 to 9 years experience earned average annual salaries between $33,385 and $64,000 (2).

A career as a sports broadcaster is a great choice for people who have a strong passion for sports and have the ability to effectively communicate sports events. Sports broadcasters must be excellent public speakers and charisma. Ambition, perseverance, patience, and determination are essential qualities of sports broadcasters. They must also be able to deal with challenging and stressful events and compete with other professionals. They must be quick to speak and provide witty comments about a variety of sporting games and events.
