News­read­ers must im­prove

Herald Sun - Switched On - - On The Couch -

I have just re­turned to live in Aus­tralia af­ter liv­ing in Eng­land for seven years. I am­strug­gling with the non-pro­fes­sion­al­ism of the news­read­ers and pre­sen­ters this coun­try has. They all sound like scream­ing ban­shees, ter­ri­ble dic­tion, in­ter­rupt­ing guests with what they think is funny, and high­pitched rant­ings— it hurts my ears. Net­works should send them to di­alect coaches to help them speak in mod­u­lated tones, and man­ners coaches, if they ex­ist, to teach them to show some re­spect. Also, note they are there to read the news and report on world and cur­rent events. I am­not in­ter­ested in their opin­ions.
