Television has become an integral part of our lives and radio stations are back with a bang. Both these media are so powerful that electronic journalism surged ahead of the print media. Television journalism has become so strong that it has produced its own stars such as Barkha Dutt, Rajat Sharma, Vinod Dua, Rajdeep Sardesai, and the like who have carved a niche for themselves.

News anchor examines, interprets news stories and introduces videotaped news or live transmissions from on-the-scene reporters. A newscaster at large stations and networks usually specialize in a particular type of news, such as sports or weather.

Reporters investigate, look at documents, observe events at the scene, and interview people. Reporters take notes and at their office, they organize the material, determine the focus or emphasis, write their stories, and edit accompanying video material. Many reporters enter information or write stories using laptop computers and electronically submit the material to their offices from remote locations. In some cases, news writer writes a story from information collected and submitted by reporters. Every time you write a script for news, they are potentially touching the lives of millions of people through Radio and Television.

Radio and Television reporters often compose stories and report "live" from the scene. At times, they later tape an introduction to or commentary on their story in the studio. Some reporters specialize in fields such as health, politics, foreign affairs, sports, theater, consumer affairs, social events, science, business, or religion. Investigative reporters cover stories that may take many days or weeks of information gathering. Some television stations use teams of reporters instead of assigning each reporter one specific topic, allowing reporters to cover a greater variety of stories. News teams may include reporters, editors and graphic artists working together to complete a story.

This specialization course will eliminate your fear of facing the camera, fine-tune your speech, and mould your latent talent for television journalism. Students will also be exposed to micro specialized fields in news journalism such as promo-writing and promo-producing for news.

Nobody is a born anchor; you simply learn the trades.

Hundreds of youth today aspire to try their luck to become an anchor; however what goes behind-the-scenes is a lot of sweat and hard work. 

A news anchor is a television personality who presents material prepared for a news program and at times must improvise commentary for live presentation. Many news anchors are also involved in writing and/or editing the news for their programs. Sometimes news anchors interview guests and moderate panels or discussions. Some provide commentary for the audience during parades and other events.

He has to be familiar with the technology, learn the terminology and become more conversant with the medium. . For instance, in PTC(piece to camera)- one must learn the art of communication which comprises pause, stress, expression, punctuation, voice modulation and so on. Anchoring is not just reading the news from teleprompter, it is also about sensibly steering a discussion, pacifying an outburst and controlling the programme. Thus, it is not only essential to have presence of mind but also a fine wit to get away when the tables are turned against you.
