A television presenter is someone who introduces or hosts programs on television. They are the public faces of television that engage with the unseen audience and present to them live and recorded shows across various genres. These presenters work for various channels on international, national, regional and satellite television and inform the audiences about the programs. Television presenters should have a well-groomed appearance, confident and pleasing personality, and a good voice and pronunciation. Presenting on television is a very demanding and high-pressure job—these professionals have to work irregular hours, constantly be under bright lights and camera, and yet put up a confident and pleasant look whenever they appear on the screen. The actual nature of a presenter’s job depends upon the programs they present, such as news, sports, music, children’s show, etc. However, there are several similarities shared by all presenters irrespective of the program genre. They have to act as a link between the program items and the audience by introducing or hosting a program in an interesting manner. Often celebrities may be roped in by channels to present a show in order to attract viewership.
