I want to become a broadcast journalist. However, when writing essays for class etc I’m not very good at all.?





I want to become a broadcast journalist. However, when writing essays for class etc. I'm not very good at all. I would like to become a news anchor/reporter. I'm right now in college trying to pursue my goal. However, at the same time I'm afraid I will have trouble with writing when I have completed my degree. I have always wanted to become a broadcaster every since I was 6. Please don't make negative comments I really need help.

    If you’re having a problem writing papers, you should know that’s a whole other monster from what you want to do professionally. They share similarities but are not the same thing.I would say, very importantly you learn how to debate and work on your voice. Pick up some confidence too, trust me that helps. Debate requires some form of organization, which could cross over into paper writing, but the problem is what’s wrong with your paper skills?As far as writing essays go, I don’t think anyone can help you as you’ve not given what’s wrong with the way you write essays. What are your teachers saying?

    Try looking into a writing class, or some kind of literary arts class. These should provide some kind of canvas for what you want to do and it should help you determine how you want to compose your broadcast/speeches(not sure what you call them).

    If you think your writing is not good, then you need to improve until you are confident.It’s good that you are in college now and not out in the world all alone. You have teachers and friends who can give you advice. Ask them how you can improve. No one is good at writing from the start. They practice by reading other people’s essays/articles, writing, getting criticism for improvement, etc etcGood Luck!

    Step1Have good verbal and written command of the English language. Take as many nonfiction and news writing courses as you can. Learn debating and public speaking skills, and become an expert in adlibbing. You may be on location without a script or teleprompter in front of you, so think and speak quickly and succinctly.Step2Be insatiably curious about current events, history and everything else. If you don’t have a broad general knowledge of popular culture, politics and geography, read up as much as possible through college courses and in your free time. You’ll have to report on many different types of stories, so brushing up on a few facts will help you become a better broadcast journalist.Step3Enroll in a broadcasting school or study journalism and broadcasting at a university. While a four year school is appropriate for some, other students may choose a broadcasting program at a trade school so they can complete their studies and enter the job market sooner.Step4Intern and work behind the scenes at a broadcast or cable station. All radio and TV stations need paid and unpaid interns to do a variety of jobs. These positions range from news writer to assistant director and weather reporter to production assistant.Step5Choose your specialty when you become a broadcast journalist. Once you have some intern or campus experience, experiment with different broadcast positions. You can become a city hall reporter, sports commentator or foreign correspondent. Many broadcast journalists try a number of different jobs before settling on their permanent area of expertise.
