Being a sportscaster is a tough tough job. You’ve got to be eloquent, knowledgeable, expressive and trustworthy. You have to manage your emotions, but convey the feeling of a given moment or game. And that’s just on air! The prep work that goes into a broadcast is tedious at best and has been covered multiple times on this website. But what if there was a shortcut? A way to have articles, news stories and other bits that help game prep, come to you.
Introducing Google News Alerts.
This is a great handy tool for having articles on teams, leagues, even individuals (coaches/players, etc) be emailed directly to you the second the hit the internet. I’ve been using it for years as a way to track alumni, prospects, leagues and teams that I cover. It’s very easy to setup as well, and you don’t even need a Google account (which, let’s be honest, who doesn’t have one?)
By setting up these alerts, you’re able to have information come to you, rather than having to search for it. It’s been an invaluable tool in my arsenal to ensure I’m always up to date on the latest happenings in my small corner of the sportscastosphere.
