About This Class


Imagine appearing on a network newscast as a reporter or anchor and you look as confident, poised, and articulate as any childhood idol you grew up watching. Wouldn't it be nice to know that you can look and sound exactly the way you want when you are conducting interviews or anchoring a newscast?

In this course you will learn the following:

  • How to look comfortable, confident and relaxed on TV
  • How to sound conversational
  • How to rehearse using video, and how to critique yourself
  • How to make constant on-air improvements

This course is delivered primarily through spoken lecture. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking.

The skill you will learn in this class is not primarily theoretical or academic. It is a skill that requires physical habits. That is why you will be asked to take part in numerous exercises where you record yourself speaking on video, and then watching yourself. Learning presentation skills is like learning how to ride a bicycle. You simply have to do it numerous times and work past the wobbling and falling off parts until you get it right.

How long this course takes is up to you. The longest part of the course involves you speaking on video, critiquing yourself, and doing it over until you like it. But if you get to the point where you love how you look and sound when you present it will be well worth the time spent. And having this skill will save you time for all future media presentations in your life.
