This experience is crucial for setting you apart from the competition. Many colleges have a TV channel or radio station. Working at one of these stations is a lower pressure way to get initial work experience. You can also use this time to work on additional skills like sound engineering or video editing. The characteristics needed to be successful as a presenter vary based on the specific position. For example, a TV presenter needs to be well groomed and aesthetically pleasing, while a radio presenter just needs to be able to speak clearly in their language of choice. However, creating clear and engaging conversation on each show you present is crucial for ratings in all mediums. You should be comfortable doing research, interviewing guests in person and on the phone, writing/rehearsing scripts, and, of course, presenting in a live or prerecorded setting.
