Radio and TV in Ghana and across the world have survived over the years because of the consistent addition of fresh talents who take over from the already established ones. It is therefore refreshing to notice on Friday that GHOne is taking deliberate steps to hone the talents of the next generation of newscasters and TV personalities.
Currently at the Accra-based TV Station are two interns, Amanda Edinam Ahiadormey, an LLB student of the University of Ghana and Theophiline Emefa Dzakpasu, a student of Communication Studies at the Ghana Institute of Journalism. On Friday, the two students were exposed to how it feels to read the News with cameras all over, in a mock session.
Both Edinam 19 and Emefa 21 excelled at the session. Of course, there was a room for improvement. For instance, Emefa kept looking at the script of Edinam, something rarely done in a live-news presentation. Again, it was obvious to notice that the girls could have done exceptional if they were a little more confident.
These notwithstanding, the girls did great and if they take up this profession, the sky will be their limits in the next few years to come.
Ghana’s next generation of newscasters are being born at GHOne TV and it is very exciting.
Below is the video of the mock news originally posted by celebrated GHOne newscaster, Nana Aba Anamoah on her Instagram page.
