Talk like a newscaster and give the impression that you're in the know. Step 1: Neutralize your voice Lose your regional dialect -- actual newscasters frequently move between cities and need to have a neutral accent. Speak a little slower and enunciate carefully, until no one can tell where you're from. Step 2: Communicate the action Tell a story when you talk. Think about each sentence's point, and stress the words that best communicate the action to help your viewers understand the information easily. Step 3: Speak with authority Speak with conviction, whether or not you know what you're talking about. Maintain good posture and make eye contact with anyone you address, to project confidence and knowledge. Tip If you're completely uninformed, make up a weather report for the upcoming week. Step 4: Stay calm Don't exaggerate when you speak; people wouldn't take a real newscaster seriously if everything they said sounded like a major development. Keep your inflection even and calm while still sounding engaged. Step 5: Have a conversation Loosen up -- speak in a conversational style and add a few laughs while you speak to connect with your audience. Then, when you've covered the day's major topics, utter a signature sign-off line and shuffle a few pieces of paper as the credits roll. Did You Know? In 2010, 762 American television stations produced original local news broadcasts.

Don't forget to nod to the camera several times in a half hour and also stand with a piece of paper in your hand

I don't like these YOUNG female news and weather casters on the tv now. They sound like pre- puberty little girls with that high pitched squeal and they giggle too much. They need to LEARN to talk with a more serious DEEPER and CLEARER voice that we can all understand.

I thought it was just me. We have one weather caster that reminds me of Dawn Lazarus from SNL.

"Neutral accent"... so American then...
Al Nava (6 months ago)
Also, an "American accent" does not exist because "American" = America = North, Central, and South America, which comprise many "accents".

He's talking about the non-regional American accent.
WhiteBoyWithAnIpod (10 months ago)
He means not southern or anything

The video doesn't mean that an American accent is a neutral accent. There are neutral accents for every language and region. For example, in Australia, there are three general accents. One sounds very posh, another sounds very bumpkin, and the third is neither -- it is a neutral accent in that context. Same concept goes for the States (a heavy southern accent is not neutral, and neither is a thick Brooklyn one), China, and everywhere else.

The "American" accent is not a neutral accent.

Pretty much speak like a midwestern, most newscasters r from there like Nebraska
Wil Pritchard (7 years ago)
I like to change accents from sentence to sentence rather than speak neutrally. That'll really make it so no one knows where I'm from and angers the hell out of them.
