Job Description for News Anchor

News anchors generally are responsible for presenting local, national and/or world news to the public. They generally work in a studio to produce TV or radio news programs, although they sometimes report or anchor programs from the scene of the broadcast's subject.

The anchor may also report stories themselves, performing such tasks as conducting interviews, obtaining video and audio to use in broadcast, researching relevant information, and using computer software to edit audio and/or video gathered through the course of reporting.
