There are several avenues to take related to your field of interest. It depends on if you're looking more towards news or something more entertainment based that might require scripting and adlibbing. If on the news side, I would agree with previous response of Broadcast Journalism. Mass Communications/Communications, Marketing, Public Relations, Business Administration, Psychology/Human Behavior are some that come to mind. I would also suggest looking at theater department and TV productions that your school has to get some background, network, or find mentors. That way, if you go with something more traditional such as Communications or Marketing, you will also get feedback and hands on experience in your desired field.
A great field to go toward. You should definitely major in communications or broadcast journalism.
Many of the current TV Show host on the news networks have a degree in Law. If you are interested in those types of TV shows than you may want to consider getting one.
I would say the following are good choices:
Any major that is primarily a 'writing' major
Also, end it with a three (3) year J.D. (Law Degree)
Communications, English or History
I'd recommend doing a Communications major. Be sure to pad your resume with a lot of real-world experience, though. Start off early doing cameras or basic work for a news outlet or TV station. This industry is highly competitive and those who have experience even at a high school and college level are often the individuals who get the best opportunities right away.
Broadcast Journalism and Political Science
I would suggest that you look into performing arts.
