Broadcast presenter is the public face, or voice, of programmes broadcast on television, radio and the internet. They work on a variety of platforms including:
national, regional, satellite and cable television;
local and national radio;
Their role is always to entertain and inform their audiences by presenting information or entertainment in an accessible and attractive way.
The nature of the job varies according to a programme’s subject matter, such as news, weather, sport, music, lifestyle, etc. Generally though, a broadcast presenter will introduce, host (or co-host) a programme, create links between items, introduce and interview guests and interact with the audience.
Prior to the broadcast, presenters may be involved in:
researching topics and background information for items to be featured on the programme;
planning and rehearsing shows;
writing, and sometimes memorising, scripts;
liaising with other members of the production and technical teams.
During the broadcast, presenters may be involved in:
introducing and hosting programmes;
interviewing guests in the studio, by telephone or on location;
reading short news, traffic, sport or weather reports;
providing links between programmes;
reading from a script or autocue, or improvising;
keeping the programme running to schedule, responding positively and quickly to problems or changes and improvising where necessary;
within television, keeping in contact with the director and production team in the studio gallery, via ear-piece link.
After the broadcast, presenters may meet with the production crew to assess or review the broadcast and to plan the next broadcast.
Radio presenters on music shows usually ‘drive’ the desk and operate some of the technical equipment for recording and playback. This generally involves using computers to cue up and play music and jingles.
