More Evidence Radio Announcers Make the Best TV Reporters
Having worked in TV back in the 1990's, I've always said that radio announcers make the best TV reporters. The reason being we can ad-lib, we don't need a script.
Case-in-point, check out this video of a young reporter doing a live shot. Only a few seconds in she forgets her lines and starts to panic - AWKWARD!
I'll guarantee you that if she had ever worked in radio, she would've recovered and no one would've ever noticed. Check it out. Be warned though, you're going to cringe.
