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 news anchor often reads compiled news stories from a teleprompter, as well as conducts on-air interviews with the subjects of news, experts and reporter colleagues as needed. They also react to breaking news as it emerges, presenting information to the viewing or listening public as it becomes available. Additionally, news anchors help make editorial decisions about which stories to air and how they should be presented. 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.
