Television has become one of the most popular mediums of entertainment and knowledge. With a plethora of channels available in one screen, it caters to the viewing needs of almost every person on earth. Right from children to young ones, teenagers to adults, men and women and even oldies, it has something to offer for all. Interestingly, every television show has a presenter who hosts the program. The role of a television presenter is extremely challenging for he/she has to deal with an unseen audience and present to them shows, live and recorded, on varying genres. Television presenters are basically links between the shows and the audience. Working at odd hours, always being bright, beautiful and presentable, having a confident personality and possessing knowledge about everything under the sun are traits of a television presenter. British television has had a pool of talented television presenters who have earned a name for themselves - be it Carol Kirkwood and her show BBC Breakfast where she is the main weather presenter or Nicky Campbell and his shows Wheel of Fortune, Long Lost Family and Watchdog, Kate Thorton and her shows The X Factor and This Morning or David Dikinson and his flagship show The David Dickinson Show.
