Hi Clarissa,


Employers prefer to hire professional broadcasters with a bachelor’s degree in journalism or communications, reports the BLS. A degree in a related subject, such as English or political science, is acceptable if accompanied by work experience. In addition, employers prefer workers who have gained experience through internships or hands-on involvement on school projects.


While pursuing a bachelor’s degree, broadcasting students take a range of classes, which may include journalistic ethics, mass communication law, mass communication theory and research. They may also take classes in production techniques, script writing, research and interviewing. Broadcasters should be comfortable covering a variety of subjects, so many programs also include liberal arts classes such as economics, political science, English and history.


Broadcasters need strong research and analytical skills. They must be able to investigate leads while patiently yet persistently delving deeper to uncover the truth and separate facts from speculation and rumors. They must also be objective and report the news impartially without inserting their opinions in the story. Broadcasters that host programs must be well rounded, since they spend much time on the air and must be able to discuss a variety of topics and provide relevant commentary on important news stories.


Excellent communication skills are essential for a broadcaster. These professionals must be able to write in a clear manner easily understandable to the average person. Broadcasters also need excellent verbal communication skills. They should be articulate and eloquent when speaking on the air or when conducting interviews. Also, broadcasters need good reading and verbal skills to read scripts and teleprompters at a normal pace without awkward pauses. In addition, hosts need to effectively moderate panels and discussions. Some broadcasters also make promotional appearances, so they should be comfortable speaking before crowds.

Hi Clarissa -

Before getting into marketing, I was a journalism major with broadcasting aspirations. In 11th and 12th grade I was involved in my high school broadcast news station - if your school has one currently it would be great for you to join. It helps a lot to get you experience and an understanding of what is involved in broadcasting. Public speaking classes will help you build the necessary skills you need if oyu plan to be in front of the camera. There are many universities and colleges that have prominent journalism programs - I suggest you research those and find one that best fits you as those kinds of programs will set you a part when looking for broadcasting opportunities.

In college, take advantage of all opportunities you can to get hands on experience. Talk to your advisors, teachers and fellow students to build your network (who you know will help when you get into your career). Most importantly, take building your skill seriously - people will notice.
