Having worked in TV back in the 1990's, I've always said that radio announcers make the best TV reporters. The reason being we can ad-lib, we don't need a script.

Case-in-point, check out this video of a young reporter doing a live shot. Only a few seconds in she forgets her lines and starts to panic - AWKWARD!

I'll guarantee you that if she had ever worked in radio, she would've recovered and no one would've ever noticed. Check it out. Be warned though, you're going to cringe.
