One of the best-known and most recognized occupations within the sportscasting career field is that of the game announcer or commentator. Typically, commentators work in pairs, consisting of the play-by-play announcer and the colour commentator. Play-by-play announcers describe the play and explain what is happening to the viewers, while the game or event is in action. The colour commentator takes over during the times when the game is not in action, to share personal knowledge and game experiences. Frequently this is transitioned by the play-by-play announcer asking the commentator a question, in a sort of tag team effort to keep the viewers engaged and entertained for the entire sporting event. This is probably the definitive sportscasting career that many people think of, and it's one of the most lucrative jobs in the field. However, this position only makes up a small percentage of people working in sportscasting.
