As a news anchor, you will start your day by reading all the papers and wires to find out everything that has happened in the past 24 hours. You will work with producers to plan and write your newscast — making necessary phone calls, sending e-mails, and, well, running around the newsroom to prepare. You can work 12-hour days, but will only actually be on the air for up to four hours. Some of the things you report on will be headline news, while others may be special segments and interviews that you've had more time to research. But with the news, you never know what will break — at a moment's notice there could be a plane crash, a natural disaster, or worse. You may spend your whole day researching what you thought were the top stories, and then the unexpected happens and the scripts are thrown away — this is when it gets tough and exciting!

TV reporters typically major in journalism or communications. These degree plans focus heavily on communication and writing skills by providing instruction in most genres of communication. For aspiring TV reporters, upper-level coursework should focus on broadcasting. Bachelor's degree programs specifically for broadcasting are also available. Coursework in subjects such as international communications, law and ethics of journalism, public affairs reporting, editing and broadcast reporting help to prepare students for their future careers.

Success Tip : Gain experience during college. Students who aspire to become TV reporters can begin gaining experience while earning their degree. Opportunities for hands-on experience in news writing and broadcasting are available through campus organizations, including radio or television broadcast groups, school newspapers and broadcasting clubs. Students might also seek out internships with local news stations to gain professional experience in the field and begin networking for jobs after graduation. Any type of field experience is beneficial for job seekers in this highly competitive profession.
