Sideline reporter


Sideline reporter

A sideline reporter, also known as a field reporter, courtside reporter (in basketball), clubhouse reporter or dugout reporter (in baseball), rinkside reporter or inside-the-glass reporter (in ice hockey), on-court reporter (in tennis), hole reporter (in golf), or boundary rider (in Australian rules football), is a member of the broadcasting team for a sporting event who assists with additional coverage away from the broadcasting booth or (in basketball) press row. Often the sideline reporter makes special updates on injuries and conducts interviews, since the play-by-play broadcaster and color commentator must remain in their main broadcast position.

In auto racing broadcasts, a pit reporter delivers updates from the pit area. In horse racing, it's called a trackside reporter, paddock reporter, winner's circle reporter, on-track reporter, horse-back riding reporter, simulcast reporter, grandstand reporter or in-house reporter.
