The government is hoping that the sports media industry will contribute $2 billion to our GDP and create 20 000 jobs by 2015. Will it work?
I have my doubts. What will we report on?
I know F1 races are coming to Singapore and so is the Youth Olympic. We will probably need coverage there. But what about on other non-F1, non-Youth-Olympic days?
The S-League? Inter-school netball games? o.O How large will their audience be?
I think Singaporeans are generally more interested in foreign sports scene.
So unless the sports media thingy is not restricted to local sports scenes only, then maybe it will work. If not, *shrugs*.
What do you think?
