Speaking to One of the Toughest Audiences on the Planet: Children


Legendary sportscaster Len Berman makes a special visit to the School for Learning and Communication Development. Sharing some of the lessons and stories from his decades of broadcasting, he tells the children about Pete Rose: “Pete Rose isn't in the Hall of Fame, because he did something you can't do if you're a baseball player. He bet on a game… and he was banned from baseball, he's still banned today, and he's not in the Hall of Fame."

Reminiscing about earlier parts of his career, he says, “I used to be a counselor at various camps, I always loved being a counselor, working and playing with kids and having a good time, so when I started writing it really was a lot of fun. The hard part for me was when I started writing, writing it so the kids would understand, you want to write so the kids will understand what you're talking about, and that came easy."

Remembering his own efforts in the sporting world, he says, “I did play sports, I wasn't very good, I did… the best I ever did in sports was my junior high school had a softball team and I was on the softball team, that's the highest level I have made in sports. So when I couldn't do anything, you do the next best thing and you talk about it. So that's what I became, a sportscaster."
