Being a TV and Radio presenter is all about personality. You either have ‘it’ or you don’t. Raw talent is all that matters.
And being a surgeon is something anyone can do if they’ve got a bit of talent and a sharp knife.
Good radio and TV presenters are typified by their competence. There will always be a need for new personalities and for ‘different’ presenting styles. But that need is short term. Competent presenters are the ones with a long shelf-life. Pure-personality presenters have the shelf-life of tomatoes.
If you want to be a skilled radio or TV presenter, if you believe the job is just as professional, skilled and developable as any other, then Carr Communications can give you the skills you need.
