Radio and Television Announcers
Although there are no formal educational requirements for
entering the field of radio and television announcing, most large
stations prefer college-educated applicants. The general reason for
this preference is that announcers with broad educational and
cultural backgrounds are better prepared to successfully meet a
variety of unexpected or emergency situations. The greater the
knowledge of geography, history, literature, the arts, political
science, music, science, and of the sound and structure of the
English language, the greater the announcer's value.
