The Former TV presenter “Mahmood Shahriari” with daughter
The opportunities to be a TV presenter are both varied and plentiful if you get it right. Twenty years ago there were few channels to watch. Presenters were carefully chosen to present the news, front a few feature programmes and to do voice overs for documentaries. Contrast that with now and the hundreds of channel choices covering every interest. Presenters are in demand, but competition for the jobs is intense. It’s not just about looking the part – presenting is an art and you need to know how to play the cameras and handle the stress on and off the screen.
