What's It Like to be a Radio and Television Show Host?

by  Educate.Today

Program image

Want to explore what your career would be like if you were the host of a radio or TV program?  Then enroll to interact with Julie Tristan, St. Louis area radio and TV personality.  She's ready to answer your questions and share information about the day to day aspects of her job as well as what goes into creating stories for her program, how to interview program guests, the training and skills needed for the job, and other topics important to you.

The program's conversation will be guided entirely by the topics you wish Julie to address and the questions your students want Julie to answer.  For example, if your students are elementary or middle school students who send topics and questions focusing on general career exploration then that will be the direction of your interaction; if your students are high school broadcast journalism students wanting to focus on more specific aspects of that industry, then that will be the direction of your interaction.  Your topic preferences and advance questions are due to us no less than three days prior to your scheduled interaction.
