Tips on being a good sports anchor?
Hi there everyone! I'm a 16 year old Junior in High School and I am in the TV Production academy at my school. I was recently told that I will be the sports anchor tomorrow (Tuesday) and on Thursday. I have no experience on camera as I have always been a behind-the-scenes worker, dealing with audio, editing, etc. I'm a very shy and quiet guy for the most part but I can usually get past that when I have an audience watching me and I have to do my job. I have a clear voice and I've been told that I'm a good writer. However, even though I'm only doing a short segment and it's only two days, the broadcast is live and there are no teleprompters used, although we are allowed to hold onto our scripts in case anything goes wrong. I'll have alot of my friends and teachers watching so I truly want to give this my all. I prepare and read over everything in preparation for any sort of presentation, but I'd like to see if you guys could provide me with tips on how to give a good broadcast, whether it's my writing, speech, body language, etc. Thank you for all your help!

That's tough to deliver a sportscast without a teleprompter. I'd become very familiar with the material, and pretend you are telling a friend about what's going on. One good tip -- take it slow. I always tend to talk a little quickly under stress, like on camera, and it's a rookie mistake. So take your time.
