As a former college football player, I am working for NBC Sports on three of their excellent football shows - Football Night in America, Pro Football Talk, and Fantasy Football Live. My day is spent in assisting the on-air talent by providing accurate, interesting, on the spot information that is to be used on the daily live broadcasts. I also secure interesting buzz-worthy segments of the live shows to be posted on the NBC Sports website. I also manage the social media accounts of the live shows with the goal of spreading awareness and promoting interest to the audience, and attracting viewers to the NBC Sports website. Everyday is an enjoyable learning experience. The management is most supportive and my co-workers are a pleasure to work with. The hardest part of the job is the commute. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to be an active participant in the world of sports.

Logger (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – March 31, 2016
Currently, I work at the NBC Sports Group campus in Stamford as a logger and subclipper who documents events during various NBC sports broadcasts of the NHL, NFL, NCAA Football, NCAA Basketball and more. The job is enjoyable because of its scheduling freedom, however, it can get difficult when the same task is repeated over time. I always try not to get lulled into a routine where I go through the motions.
Working at NBC Sports was an incredible experience for me. This internship program allowed me to meet an extensive amount of influential people who all helped me learn something about the company. Additionally, I narrowed down my interests and learned what I really love.
Assisting the production crew (Former Employee) – Various locations – December 3, 2015
A typical day at NBC sports is filled with adventure and adrenaline. I worked for the part of NBC sports that covered Nascar. I got to see parts of the country I would probably never get the chance to experience. The thrill of being part of a live broadcast was enough to want me to stay with NBC sports forever. My coworkers were very easy to get along with. The hardest part of my job was getting from raceway to raceway. Other then the commute from raceway to raceway I throughly enjoyed ever second of working for NBC sports
I enjoyed my time at NBC Sports. I learned a lot and met a lot of people who love their jobs and push you to do better. I would have to do a lot of checking over spreadsheets and sometimes would be able to work on a project on my own and be creative.
sometimes got treated as a new guy and not like an equal
Associate Director (Current Employee) – Everywhere, World – August 12, 2015
NBC has been a fantastic place to grow as a Television producer. There is a work ethic code that is under the entire umbrella and everyone follows it. Long hours and hard work are what you find at NBC Sports, but there is a huge payoff. This includes working with fantastic people, traveling to some of the most outrageous places and experience some of the most exciting moments in sports. I would recommend NBC Sports to anyone who wants to work hard and learn about what it takes to work in television.

Great environment to work in. Offer many perks within the company. Obvious issues with communication and politics, but have some ability to control your own environment. Demanding customer base, but it is expected.
Video Record Engineer (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – December 17, 2014
I was a freelancer with NBC Sports for the 2014 Winter Olympics so my time with them was short. I learned how to convert HD feeds to SD and how to record to DVD, tape, and computer file. The management were pleasant. My co-workers were all pleasant. A lot of them were also freelancers for the Olympics and we worked well together. The hardest part of the job was working long and unusual hours. My schedule was 6pm-6am. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing all the various NBC feeds and interacting with the Transmission staff when taking in feeds.
Amazing experience, looking to make it more permanent
Production Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 29, 2014
A typical day has me working hockey games that will be broadcasted on NBC sports. The games I work are located in Boston at the TD Garden. I typically help the crew set up for the nights broadcast by running lines, helping build cameras, installing sound mics on the ice, and other related duties.
Management and my co-workers are great. They are all friendly and willing to help me progress towards my career goals. They are easy to talk to and work with and make the long days fun.
The hardest part of the job is not having the knowledge that others have.
Seeing how a televised sports event is broadcasted is an amazing learning experience and that, along with working with on-air broadcasters is the best part of the job.
Having them refer to me by name is a great morale boost and something that makes me want to do even more to advance at NBC.
free lunches, have met and interacted with nbc sports on-air personalities.

Logger/Subclipper (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – January 10, 2015
A typical day at work begins with a morning meeting for NASCAR America in which we discuss the topics of the show for that day. While working alongside with the producers, I grab clips for the editors and put them into a sequence, so they can be put into the show. I spend time in the edits as a production assistant and that is one of the most enjoyable parts of my job. I am knowledgeable about the steps that are necessary to take in order to make a final product for show and can work with my co-workers to make the best product in the quickest amount of time. Overall, I continue to learn everyday and improve my skills to further better my experience in television production.
