Commentator

Commentators are mostly on the field, providing live action commentary on certain events, conducting interviews, and replaying feats. The most common type of commentator is under the sports umbrella, as well as political. Sometimes they can fill in for the anchors, write commentary pieces to be used, and edit material to be used on air. As they are regularly on camera, the need for great communication skills and hygiene is crucial.
