If you’re someone who loves to tell stories, craft narratives and entertain people, then perhaps you should consider a career as a broadcaster, whether it be on television or on the air waves of the radio. Broadcasters not only enjoy stable work doing what they love, but there are a variety of perks to the job as well ranging from notoriety to being able to interview people that you genuinely admire and respect.
