Broadcaster Courses

Broadcasters are the people who announce the news, host talkshows, and present radio programs. They traditionally work for television networks, radio stations, and other broadcast media outlets, but there is a growing market for broadcasters in the world of podcasting.

As a Broadcaster you could be carrying out background research on a feature story, presenting a segment on a talkback show, practicing a script by reading it aloud and creating a test presentation, marking-up script copies for other presenters, verifying source material and checking copyright releases, attending a meeting with the production team, or getting your hair and makeup done before a show.

Broadcasters exude self-confidence and charm and are great at building relationships and conducting interviews.
