How can I become a sports analyst, specifically in professional basketball?
I was a student at UC Davis but was dismissed due to poor academic performance. What are the steps to get a job at ESPN or FOX SPORTS as an analyst? I believe I know a great amount of professional basketball and some professional football and I have a huge passion in sports. I also do not want to resume my studies as a mathematics major, but I do plan on attending a community college as a communications or journalism major. Should I also take speech classes?
