What is the entry level position of a news anchor?

Becoming a news anchor has always been a dream of mine. I've heard the best way to get the job is to start from the bottom and show people you are committed and have what it takes.

First, do some research on local stations to see if they offer an internship program for individuals like yourself who would like to pursue a career as a news anchor. You may start out as an assistant helping around the station and observing the anchors as they broadcast. Find a mentor who is willing to show you what it takes.
