Question by Baseballstud123: What sports broadcasting things can I do as a 13 year old?
I am 13 years old and want to be a sports broadcaster when I am older. I want to go to camps or do an internship or something but I don’t know anything I can do. Any suggestions?

Right now you can write articles on local little-league games, youth soccer, etc from a young person’s perspective. Submit them to your local newspaper (maybe your folks can help) and see what they think.
You can also go the YouTube/ MySpace route. Go to the games with a video recorder or even a cellphone with a camera and record parts of the events, then combine them with your own color commentary and present them as 1 minute clips via Youtube. Share with your friends and their folks. Learn to network your talents and interests.
