Job Description for Broadcaster

A broadcaster works as on-air talent in broadcast media, which typically includes radio and television. Broadcasters may serve a variety of roles, such as newsreaders, anchors for news broadcasts, voiceover professionals, announcers for sports events, and hosts for local programming and call-in shows. Broadcasters must develop their ability to enunciate and read clearly with a minimum of vocalized pauses and disfluency; learning to read from cue cards, teleprompters, computer screens and/or paper documents is often needed as well. Broadcasters' work may be taped or broadcast live on the air; in either case, they are expected to be accurate and engaging to listeners or viewers.
