News presentation and formats have long since changed and that too quite dramatically. From pre designed scripts which were just to be read; now news has become more interactive with more features, reviews and interviews being added to the normal news bulletin.
Another major development has been the airing of breaking news, live action as it happens in the hub of action. Breaking news is not restricted to covering social, political or economic happenings but has extended to the world of sports. Sports breaking news is fast becoming a frequent feature of most of these news channels who focus on getting the complete lowdown on the sports action.
A lot of sports information gets listed daily and is listed as sports breaking news. But for the sports enthusiast, it is of extreme importance this data is authentic and of consequence.
