"Sometimes, failure is what leads you to the path of your passion."
The famed media name, Spero Dedes, always dreamt of becoming a sportscaster, but his hard-working father was skeptical of his broadcasting degree and asked him to pursue a technical subject of study.
However, Spero failed in gaining satisfactory grades in the subject which left him with the only subject of study, that was, Broadcasting. And further, there was no way his father could stop him as that was the only option left.
Soon after gaining his degree, Spero started actively working in the field of sportscasting. In 2004, Spero covered the Summer Olympics for NBC Sport and also served as a commentator for the College Basketball on CBS.
In 2005, Spero signed in as a play-to-play radio announcer for Los Angeles Lakers. This got him to the height of fame and made him one of the known names in the sector within no time.
Later, from 2006 to 2011, Spero also served for the NFL Network as a studio host and play-to-play announcer.

As a professional sports announcer for the Los Angeles Lakers, Spero’s average salary can be predicted to be around $45K. From his long-time work in the field, Spero must have already garnered an incredible amount of net worth.
