What You'll Get
Becoming a successful television personality requires a diverse skill set that includes the patience to endure hours of line rehearsing, the wit for lightning-fast ad-libbing, and the shape-shifting ability to forge two equally stunning good sides. Break into show business with today’s Groupon to Break Into TV. Choose between the following options:
- For $99, you get four weeks of TV-hosting classes (a $200 value).
- For $169, you get a two-day weekend intensive TV-hosting class (a $350 value).<p>
Break Into TV equips aspiring television personalities, including news anchors, meteorologists, and television hosts, with the skills necessary to become top-notch broadcast talent. During the weekend or month-long course, students can hone their on-screen personas under the attentive tutelage of AMS-sealed meteorologist, TV host, and news reporter Jonathan Novack. Intensive weekend courses pack two days chock-full of training in teleprompter reading, voice delivery, live reporting, and interviewing skills, imparting essential skills such as which questions not to ask during color pieces featuring water-skiing squirrels. During the two-day course, students also work under the watchful eye of the pros to construct a submission-quality 60-second demo reel.
A month of sessions takes place during weekly training courses on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights at 7:30 p.m., where students will cover similar ground to the weekend intensive. Guest speakers from every corner of the live-broadcast business bolster these sessions with their professional expertise, personal anecdotes, and industry wisdom. During the month of sessions, students construct 60 seconds of demo-reel footage, perfect for auditioning for grandmothers’ approval.
