This year makes me 6 years as a presenter on television.
It has been an exciting learning process for me. I want to appreciate Pst. Idy James who introduced me first to radio and then to television in 2007 and 2008.
Somebody has got to believe in you and introduce you in life. He did.
I have learnt from many veterans, especially locally.
Michael Bush’s confidence and eloquence did catch my attention when I used to watch him on AKBC and NTA,Uyo those days. Today he has gone on to dominate the airwaves in Abuja, being the first independent producer on FRCN.
I studied Microbiology in University of Uyo…but I had an intense desire to be a television presenter. How possible was that?So also did Raphael Edem. He had a strong desire to be on radio and television.From what I gather, he studied Engineering in FUTO but he came on television and became a supers star!
I learned a lot from him those days, especially the way he handled interviews. Today, he serves as one of the MCs for all of Governor Akpabio’s events.
I was helped by people and I want to also help people .
Emmanuel Sam, Uduak AsuquoShenneld Enobong JohnsonCletus Joseph Ubong ClementDavid D’GeniusEmeka Obia all had their FIRST television experience on my platform.
I mentored them…and still mentor a number of them.
David D’ Genius has gone on to be a television regular , radio host and MC.
Emeka Obia became MC of a successful reality show I CAN DANCE and also runs a radio program.
Let me share with you a few tips, and then invite you for a 3 day workshop. Every trainee will have practical experience with me on television.
1. FIND A NICHE:
I focused on Motivationals and Business development. Any area of human interest will do: Sports, Politics, Religion, Health etc.
2. BE GOOD:
By this I mean be a master in that area of interest.I was confidently recommended because I was very good at motivational speaking.
3. LEARN HOW TO SPEAK:
Eloquence and good diction is key.That is one area that I will also be of tremendous help to you in the workshop. We would learn about [public speaking and mass media.
4. FACIAL MANIPULATIONS:
Television viewers are seeing you first before they are hearing you. You must master facial gestures and I can show you how. Facial gestures move viewers faster than any other thing you do in front of the camera.
5.OVERCOME TV/MICROPHONE FRIGHT:
Most of my television programs have been live shows. That can put one under intense pressure because you cannot afford to make mistakes.
No “Cut!” from the producer. It is you and the camera…and millions of viewers.There is a “how” to overcome this fright.
I want to work with 10 passionate individuals who want to be television presenters.
