Sports news is a part of the news feature that each sports enthusiast awaited during regular news telecasts during the time when there was clearly no dedicated sports or sports news channels.

So one saw the growth of channels for children, women, the young adult etc and saw an upswing of channels specialized in a particular form of activity such as music, sports, news, commerce etc.
As the cable television network grew so did these channels becoming larger and more comprehensive. The networks grew to gain more coverage and cover more sports activities from throughout the world.
