Newscaster

Newscasters, which is short for news broadcasters, are those who present the news to the public via the television or the radio. This has recently become a possibility on the Internet as well. Outside of being the face that the audience sees, they assist with rewriting wire service copies, acting as journalists, or even conducting interviews. They receive their news from Teleprompters, allowing them to easily access the information they need quickly.
