Sports Commentator

Description

As part of a larger team, our Sports Commentators provide unbiased commentary from Dens, Tannadice and The DIA. Sports Commentators should be able to forget about their own preferences and loyalties and must ensure that all broadcasts are completely impartial. The volunteers should have an active interest and good knowldge of sport in general. Sports Commentators will rotate between covering the games live and, once training has been completed, anchoring in the studio. Commentator and summarises roles are also rotated to ensure things are shared equally.
