This study concerns analyzing and describing examples of live conversations in Navad sport program based on Dooley and Levinson's theories of cohesion (2001). Accordingly, at first 12 programs were selected randomly from all Navad programs during one year including 44 programs. Then, twelve live conversations out of the selected programs were recorded and transcribed. In addition, the varieties of cohesion tools in the samples and the frequency of their usage in recorded programs were derived. Finally, the diagrams and percentage of cohesion tools used in these conversations were drawn by using Excel software and SPSS. Results indicated that with respect to the percentage of frequencies obtained from the varieties of cohesion tools, homogeny with 66/58 percent, has allocated the highest percentage of usage frequency; semantic propositions with 65/18 percent were in the second place; descriptive words were in third place with 12 percent; 45.8 percent was devoted to morphological-syntactic patterns; and finally lexical relations with 17.2% were in the fourth and fifth positions, respectively. Due to the performer's power of speech and more verbal communication on live TV programs, it can be concluded that the impact of these media is very high. Therefore, the proposed cohesion tools, according to the priorities expressed above may have a significant impact on the semantic relations. To enclose, based on the results of Chi-square test, cohesion tools proposed by Dooley and Levinson (2001) were extendable to the live sport conversations of Navad program with 95% degree of confidence.
