Whether your interest is in hard news, current affairs, human interest, entertainment, culture, travel or sports presenting, there are very few jobs where you can indulge your passions while reaching out to millions of people at the same time.

Your job could involve introducing or hosting a show, reporting on special events, reading the news, interacting with live audiences or interviewing folk from all walks of life. There are so many different aspects to the job which means that, when you’re hosting a TV show no two days are the same.

Finding Your Feet and Your Own Unique Presenter Self

However, TV presenting can be a tough business to break into and that’s why it’s important to get the inside track on what it takes to become the next David Letterman or Ryan Seacrest.

There’s a common misconception that being a television host is a one-man-show, so having a genuine understanding of TV broadcasting and the time and talent it takes to make a successful programme, is invaluable knowledge.

Learning how to bring something special to a show by focusing on your strengths and building your own personal brand, is also essential in your approach to becoming a standout TV presenter.

That’s why this course lays down the foundation that you need to become part of this thrilling world, while imparting essential tricks and tips of the trade. In doing this course, you will learn:

  • The basics of broadcasting
  • The team behind the scenes
  • The most important skills you need to possess
  • What producers and agents are really looking for in a TV presenter
  • How to stand out from the crowd
  • Understanding your own special ‘brand’

Teaming Personal Skills with Technical Know-How

We’ll follow this up with a deeper focus on the technical skills you’ll need when fronting a television programme. You’ll be introduced to:

  • Different camera presentations from handheld to multi-camera
  • What it means to ‘talk to camera’, ‘talk to time’ and how to do both effectively
  • Autocue techniques
  • Using an earpiece with ‘open talkback’
  • How to ad-lib effectively
  • Researching, scripting and conducting great on-air interviews
  • Pre-records and live broadcasts

Looking Good, Feeling Great – The Small Screen Sees It All

Equally important is knowing how to look the part and, of course, look amazing while on the small screen. You might have a great personality and a fantastic rapport with audience and guests, but if you’re looking washed-out or overly-nervous, that’s what the viewers back home will remember.

Our course teaches you to consider everything from the colours you wear and the body language you use to how your surroundings can complement or overshadow you.

Reeling in the Jobs with a Winning Showreel

A fantastic showreel that introduces you in all your authentic brilliance is your main key to getting a foot in the door of any TV presenting job. Knowing what footage to include and how to package it so that your personality and unique presenting skills are shown in their best light is really important. We help you figure out the subject matters to include as well as the structure and format of the tape, so that you are positioning yourself for the right market for your skills and interests.

Furthermore we give you all the tips to getting that dream job (without having to first scrub the production room floor to get it!). So, what are you waiting for? Start your TV Presenter online course with the IOA today.
