Broadcast News Anchor CV Example

People may think that newscasters only need to talk well and look pretty and decent but it requires more.  The job of a broadcast news anchor goes more than that and reading the teleprompter with few errors.  It calls for journalistic and creative writing to capture your audience attention, meet deadlines, do investigative reporting on often requiring you to be at the scene of deadly or dangerous events like a war zone or calamity. Being able to think on your feet, ad-libbing and making intelligent editorial statements right in the middle of unfolding events are critical skills.
