How To Become A News Correspondent
News correspondents are responsible for gathering news information and presenting it to the public from areas where important news events are likely to occur. They often present news from remote locations. News correspondents typically need at least a bachelor degree in mass communications, journalism, or other related field. Prospective news correspondents typically complete courses in journalism, mass communications, media, broadcasting, television news, and radio news. Many employers prefer applicants with previous experience. Employment of news correspondents is expected to decline moderately from all professions, decreasing 8% from 2008 to 2018.
