What is a News Presenter?

A news presenter is a journalist who communicates the news to the public via television or radio. They work with a production team to ensure a seamless broadcast of news stories and events.  A broadcaster may have a field that they specialise in, such as local news, sports, entertainment, or business.

Once you have finished your response please submit it below in one document. Accepted file formats include powerpoint or pdf. REMEMBER if you are including a video ensure you submit the video within a powerpoint presentation so this can be viewed. 

This is a professional document that you are presenting to your client; so you should format the pages to look professional. It needs 'wow factor'.

Good luck!
