I want to be a news anchor.


Answer by  Darry (3853)

Typically news anchors will have attended journalism and broadcasting programs at university. Additionally, they need to have prior experience in television such as a student news program or other such employment. It helps to have a degree in Broadcasting but is not required.

There are no mandated education requirements, but an undergraduate degree in journalism is suggested. Also important are studies in current events, media, history and, increasingly, business. Many anchors also study public speaking and/or drama.

There are no particular requirements. Many of them do have degrees in either journalism or communications, but this is not essential. Having such a degree will make it much easier to find a job, however.

News anchors are expected to have a minimum of a bachelor's degree in journalism, communications, or something similar. Additionally, you'll want to go to a broadcasting school.
