News anchors typically research stories, interview people, and report the news on television.
A four-year bachelor’s degree in journalism, communications, English, political science, or a related field is probably necessary to obtain this position. A higher degree (master's or doctorate) in a related field, which may take an additional two-five years to earn, would be more valuable.
Because of the large number of people who want to enter this field and the relatively small number of openings, there will continue to be a lot of competition for these positions.
