Hi Sahil,

Interesting career option.

The news Reader is the "Face" of a broadcasting agency.

He is the one voice that reaches the masses and the masses are kept well informed.
So the Reader plays the most important job in a broadcasting agency.

But as a Reader, you are not just handed over a script that you go on AIR and read.

The groundwork also needs to be done by you.

Though you have team of Reporters, who visit the places and brings in the news to the studio, then there is the Editor team, who would edit the news item according to its relevance, and then comes the show producer, who will take the ultimate decision, to see what goes ON-AIR.

So before you begin the job as a Reader, you would have to have an exposure into all the above mentioned segment right from

  • News Reporter
  • Editor
  • Script writer

Since as a reader, you need to be completely knowledgeable, so exposure to all the fields is a must.

Now as a Reader, your task will also include after few years, depending on your abilities:

  • Conduct or Host Talk shows
  • One to One interview with eminent personalities
  • Writing columns
  • Giving opinions
  • Participating or conducting various Debate shows

As you have mentioned, after 5 years, to be honest, 5 years is quite a short span of time. Media is a field of struggle and a rat race.

But never-the-less, your qualities like

  • Passion
  • Personality
  • Quick learning
  • Being bold but assertive
  • Creativity

will help you achieve your goal sooner than later

Hope this helps

Wish you good luck....
