Anesia’s Answer

The school subjects required to become a news anchor in India include Investigative Journalism, Broadcast Journalism, Writing for Communications, Communication Law, and Mass Communications. These subjects in particular enable potential anchors have the knowledge and skills necessary to be confident and able when performing their duties. As a communications major that has taken all of the subjects listed, I feel this holds true for myself as well.

Esha’s Answer

You need a strong will to understand the stories around society. Interest plays an important role to become a Multimedia Journalist. I born and brought up in Chattisgarh, India. Nowadays, I'm live in Missouri. Indian schools require a journalism-related subject in the 12th.

Mahesh’s Answer

Television news anchors must have a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism or communications
Relevant internship experience, and work experience in smaller cities would be an added advantage.
Work either at a news desk or as a reporter for a while at a low key news channel. Say maybe three to six months.
Learning the craft in small markets provides necessary training if a broadcast journalist wants to
work their way up and become successful anchors.
Once you know people in the channel, you can express interest in anchoring.
Practice anchoring and give a screen test.

Maureen’s Answer

Find something you are really passionate about-movies, music, the environment, food...whatever it is, ask as many questions as you can and talk to professionals in that industry. The key to being a journalist is being curious. Your job is to convey the information you learned in a relatable and engaging way for your audience. Take a writing, public speaking, video production, and audio production class. In order to be an anchor, usually you have to also understand all of the moving technological parts and work your way up. Don't give up.

You need to have a bachelor degree in journalism. Apart from that you also need to have an interest area like politics, economics, sports etc. You should be someone who can see things without a preconceived bias and should have the mind to be curious to know more and dig deeper than the surface.

Ramzi’s Answer

Much like in America there are levels to becoming a Journalist in India. The first step would be to discern all things involving jouranlims/media during one's free time. Second step being to find anytype of work involving media whether an internship or a receptionist at Multi-Media Company. Third, obtain a degree relating to a specific field you would like to cover as a journalist. For example, if racism interests you. Major in History with a focus on civil rights movements.

Thank you comment icon Very good Ramzi Saeed Ahmad Mazari

Latya’s Answer

Hello Percy - I earned a Bachelor's degree in Journalism. Your English, creative writing and public speaking classes in high school will be a good foundation. Also, journalists have a natural curiosity that pushes the to go after the story and dig deeper. Are you naturally curious? I would also recommend taking advantage of the live features on social media (if you have a protected account). You can either do this in a quiet space at home or even go live from an event and practice interviewing people and reporting live coverage. I actually do this quite a bit just for fun. I hope this helps.

Best,

Latya

Milton’s Answer

First and foremost, reporting and writing 1 and 2... these are the fundamentals of journalism. Whether it’s print, online, or broadcast. Second, practice explaining complex situations in easy to understand and conversational ways, this draws the audience in. Third: learn to shoot, edit, prepare to be an on camera reporter, write broadcast scripts, fact check, find sources, find compelling stories and shoot a lot of b-roll... and the key of all be a good interviewer. Be inquisitive and never presume that you know everything. Always be curious. Always ask for help. And always practice... even the matter you speak has to be clear for the audience to understand... no ,uh, or , ohs,. You are the captain and along with your newsroom you’ll do fine.

Shaquille’s Answer

For those in India, I would begin with English in high school. If possible, look to join a writing course. Digital media classes may be available to take as well.

Your college courses should include: Mass Communications, Communications In Law, Broadcasting Journalism, Journalism, and Investigative Journalism. These courses are to prepare you for a career in journalism.

You will want to have an internship at a local or state level media organization. This will show you the ends and outs of journalism from production and their stations, to meeting the anchors themselves. It also helps you get a better understanding of what it takes to get a product behind the camera.
