Today's class ended with a mock on-air interview. I did well at this with the huge assumption that it would be edited. I was sincere, got my facts correct, but I was hesitant.
My classmates thought it was weird that I would be nervous on camera.
Actually, the job of a spokesperson is a very special skill which I do not have. I do not memorize well. And a spokesperson has to be in full control of the facts before getting on camera. A great memory is an important part of being on-camera talent. And I have a spotty memory.
