Specialized Performances

Each performing opportunity has its own challenges, just as each performer will have his or her own strengths and weaknesses in each setting. In this chapter you will consider the work of performers who specialize in various aspects of news and information, including working “in the field,” presenting a live report or creating a report to be inserted into a news story; leading a host-driven show, such as a talk show, demonstration show, or home improvement show; and working as a weathercaster or sportscaster.
