Lazy Talk

TV news broadcasters are professional readers and voices.

Or are they?

Are they so busy prior to going on-air that they don’t have time to practice and pronounce the names of the people they are reporting on? Very often they have to say a name that is difficult to speak correctly. They should know in advance the name will be difficult and find out how to pronounce it and then practice it again and again until they can say it properly and fluently.

When they say “I hope I said that right” or make an apology for saying it wrong they lose credibility. And, it’s disrespectful to the viewer. To me they certainly lose their professional status!
