Notre Dame is known for there very successful football team, but what people don’t known is all the work people do behind the scenes. Jack Nolan, has been doing play-by-play for Notre Dame sports for about ten years. He does hours of work behind the scenes so you can get a good product on both the radio and television. What you see on your television while watching football doesn’t just magically appear there, they’re hours of works that go behind the scenes that makes it as good as you see it on the television screen.
Jack Nolan has been doing sports reporting for basically his entire life, he has worked 35 seasons with Notre Dame, 25 years at WNDU, worked at CNN, and was involved in broadcasting very historical speeches. He stated that he has always wanted to do something with sports and reporting from when he was a little kid to now, which is exactly what he is doing now. He has been working with the media at Notre Dame for 35 seasons, and has been getting students involved with helping Notre Dame with the media recently.
The students and professers that work there also have to prepare hours to get a good product out to people. For example, Nolan says that it’s always good to over prepare when you want to get a good end product, which usually happens to be about eight hours of work, before the actually interview happens. Also, they have be able to efficiently communicate with everyone that is recording the event. So, lots of extra work is put into reporting that not many people know about.
