Becoming a Broadcast News Analyst

Employers in the broadcast news industry will typically favor candidates with a bachelor's degree in journalism or communications and experience delivering news for radio or television broadcast. There are a handful of online associate degree programs in broadcasting and mass communications, as well as bachelor's degree programs that combine online with traditional classroom coursework. That said, you should expect a reputable degree program in broadcasting and communications to include hands-on classes in an on-campus setting. Some schools allow journalism or communications majors to select broadcast journalism electives, which may include the following:
  • Radio and Television News
  • Electronic News Reporting
  • Principles of Production
  • International Communication
Competition will continue to be strong in larger metropolitan areas where news is broadcast to bigger and wider audiences. Graduates will likely find more broadcast news analyst jobs and opportunities at local radio and television stations in smaller towns.
