3. Their “office” isn’t particularly glamorous
During games, producers sit in trucks. On the low end, they’re fairly basic and super cramped. On the high end, they’re still pretty basic, but less cramped. The worst part: the trucks are kept crazy cold so the equipment doesn’t overheat. But at least trucks have walls, so that beats being outside this time of year.
4. The faster the action, the harder the job
Is there enough time to roll two or three replays of an important play before the next one? Which camera should you cut to in the next two seconds? There are tons of decisions that have to be made incredibly fast. A sport like golf or Olympic curling (go Sweden!) has more time (although there are several players going on several holes at once) than, say, a fast-paced football or basketball game, but they’re all still incredibly stressful.
