What CareerCast had to say: "Newscasters prepare and deliver the news over the air on television or radio. They typically deliver the days news from inside the studio, but for larger stories they may broadcast from the field. In this 24-hour news-cycle society, the stress level for newscasters can be intense. Its a highly competitive field to out-scoop their competitors and get the story out first."
