The Al-Arabiya News TV reporter’s recommendations for those who want to become a reporter
Look good on camera. This doesn’t mean that you have to look like a movie star or a Victoria’s Secret model. You don’t even have to be classically handsome or beautiful. You do, however, have to look appealing on camera, and have that special quality that makes people want to watch you doing whatever you do. This is a mixture of charisma, confidence, and that special something that will make people respond to you even if you’re covering a story about a local bake sale. Unfortunately, it can go the other way — you may be incredibly attractive but may come off as lackluster on camera. Don’t think that your looks are a golden ticket to the profession.
