News presentation and formats have long since changed and that too quite dramatically. From pre designed scripts that were merely to be read; now news has become more interactive with a lot more features, reviews and interviews being combined with the normal news bulletin.
Another major development is the airing of breaking news, live action as it happens in the hub of action. Breaking news is just not limited to covering social, political or economic happenings but has extended to the world of sports. Sports breaking news is fast becoming a regular feature of most of these news channels who aim at getting the complete lowdown on the sports action.
A great deal of sports information gets listed daily and is also listed as sports breaking news. But for the sports enthusiast, it is actually of extreme importance this information is authentic and of consequence. It is often seen in quite a few cases where sports bloopers are presented as sports breaking news. Usually it takes quite some time to filter such information and get information that is of any real consequence.

A few of these channels are ESPN, Sky Sports News, BBC Sport and Fox Sports and convey latest sports news from around the globe for their viewers.
