Today’s topic is reporting live outside on a cold day. Sometimes when you are a reporter or a presenter you will be asked to report live at the location of the story in the presentation. This can happen at any time of year, including the cold winter days. People may wonder how to keep warm if they are reporting on a cold winter day outside.
When you are reporting on a cold winter day, it goes without saying to dress appropriately. Make sure you have enough layers. If it is just too cold to report outside, let the crews know when you’re not on camera if you can get another volunteer or sit inside to do the presentation. If you must do it outside, dress warmly and go inside during the times you are not reporting to get warm. This will give you more energy to go back outside to continue the live presentation.
What about you? Have you ever did a live presentation outside on a cold day? How cold was it? What happened? What did you do? Let me know in the comments.
