About Us

“The news anchor is exactly that – an anchor, a center, a focus.” ~Jessica Savitch TV anchors, also known as newscasters, news analysts or news anchors, are the on-air people that deliver news stories to the broadcasting station’s audience. These professionals are usually required to have a bachelor’s degree. Internships or work experience are frequently needed for employment. TV anchors often work their way up the reporting ranks to land the job after working as a reporter, news writer or correspondent. Most employers tend to prefer TV anchors with a background in journalism or mass communications. Coursework for bachelor’s degrees in broadcast journalism include reporting, news writing and editing, broadcast reporting and writing, television news production, and media ethics. A mass communications major takes courses like journalism, multimedia communications, electronic media, broadcasting, and media ethics. Practical experience while attaining a college degree is also beneficial for broadcasting students. Students can work at their college’s broadcasting station, part-time jobs, or internships to learn and apply basic skills, and gain work experience in the industry.
