I am often asked about becoming a sportscaster. From breaking into the industry to creating a demo tape, I receive hundreds of email a month from young professionals looking to enter the business as well as mid-career professionals wanting to purse their dream careers.

This interview I did with's Brian Clapp let's you inside the virtual locker room to share what a sportscaster's career narrative is really like. In short it's fun, exhilarating, exhausting, frustrating, rewarding and challenging. It's a lot of things, rolled into one. It's also a career that requires multiple talents and an open mind.

Read the entire piece. It answers a lot of questions you may have. Also read these stories:

From jocksniffing to dawdling and donkeyjacking (the art of doing nothing when you should be doing something), I have seen interns do it all. Too often, we see interns doing things they shouldn't be. It's not solely their fault. Many times young professionals come into an internship without a solid understanding what is and isn't acceptable behavior. While we don't want to dwell on negative experiences, it bears discussing.

Whether you're a first-time intern or a seasoned, internship pro like Suzi Mellano (click HERE to read Suzi's story), here are important things to consider during your internship.
