The Thrill of Live Reporting

Sunday Night Football reporter Michele Tafoya shares tips with Kid Reporter

By Grace Ybarra | October 25 , 2011

On September 25, the Indianapolis Colts hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers in a nationally-televised NFL football game broadcast on NBC Sunday Night Football. One member of the Sunday Night Football team is Michele Tafoya, who reports from the field during games.

Before the Colts-Steelers game, Kid Reporter Grace Ybarra talked to Michele Tafoya about being a female sports journalist and how covering live sports is different than other kinds of reporting.
