American News Show Hosts
As we continue to see more instances of media personalities harassing, abusing, or even killing those they’re in close proximity with, it is important to note that not all people working in the television industry are bad. In fact, there are many great news show hosts who use their positions to inspire others and influence them for good!
News shows such as The Oprah Winfrey Show, This Morning, and Good Morning America helped shape individuals’ lives by informing, educating, and inspiring them through live talk shows and digital streaming platforms.
Oprah was known for her famous “Life Is Your Message” sermon, which encouraged her audience to put away material possessions and focus on living an authentic life. She also inspired people to pursue educational opportunities and help other people achieve dreams.
This Morning focused on helping its viewers start off the day on a positive note by encouraging sleep, exercise, and nutritional practices. GMA promoted self-care and beauty treatments and products during its early years before becoming more political.
There you have it! Some examples of well-known TV news show hosts who influenced and educated society on various topics while promoting health and wellness.
Hosts of The Oprah Winfrey Show
During her long career, television host Oprah Winfrey has made a significant impact on society as she inspires and influences others through her talk show.
Her success comes from her ability to connect with her audience and learn about their personal lives. She also learns about what they are going through and addresses those issues head-on in an honest way.
By being open and sincere, she encourages her viewers to do the same. This is how she was able to get so many things done — helping people feel better about themselves and giving them the courage to go after what they want out of life.
Oprah’s influence isn’t always positive, however. By promoting self-esteem and encouraging individuals to pursue their dreams, she can have negative effects as well.
People who don’t like change may use her style of talking as an excuse not to make any changes in their own lives. Others may copy some of her strategies for success which could backfire if your not careful.
Many people will find it hard to be more generous or kind towards others because you would rather focus on yourself than other people. On top of that, there are times when her comments hurt someone’s feelings, making them avoid anyone connected to her shows.
Hosts of The View
As mentioned before, The View is a popular daytime talk show that has been airing for over 20 years now. It boasts having one of the highest ratings for any show in its time slot with an average audience of 3 million every day!
The show’s success comes from the fact that it offers a diverse set of viewpoints. This includes political views, as well as personal ones such as religion and sexuality.
While some people may find some of their opinions to be too liberal or not conservative enough, this doesn’t matter to most viewers. They watch the show because they enjoy listening to all sides of an argument.
As shown by the many debates during the election season, The View can sometimes start off lighthearted and fun, but eventually turns into an intense talking session.
Overall, The View is a good source of entertainment since it elicits different reactions almost every time. Many people praise the hosts’ ability to hold conversations without being overly dramatic or crude.
Hosts of The Hunt With John Oliver
As discussed earlier, television has an ever-growing list of things it can be used to influence and motivate its audiences. This is true whether you look at comedy shows like The Daily Show or serious programs like CNN’s State Of The Union.
In fact, there are even times when less earnest content shines so much light onto important issues that it becomes informative. For example, people may watch Jimmy Fallon’s late night talk show to laugh at his jokes, but they soon learn something about politics from his interviews.
When he isn’t mocking politicians for their misdeeds, he talks about current events and what it means for society. He also brings in guests who have interesting perspectives as well.
These types of conversations contribute not only to educating viewers, but also giving them material with which to argue either side of an issue.
Hosts of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee
Many people may not know that there are actually three main hosts for this show. They are all very different in their style, personality, and approach to talking about current events.
Samantha is the longest-running host of the show but she is also the only one who is paid full time. She comes from Canada so some of her vocabulary and phrases feel slightly off sometimes.
She does have an impressive track record though as she has won several awards for her work including two Emmys.
Eliza Orlen is our newest star! Eliza is originally from Texas and she spent most of her life growing up around media. Her family even owned a local radio station where she would do interviews and talk shows.
Her passion for media grew more intense when she was in high school where she produced and hosted her own weekly television show. Since then she has done many other TV roles such as playing Beth in The Goldberg’s and Tracy in Girl Meets World.
Hosts of Ellen
As we speak, there are over 3,000 different positions at The Ellen Show. These include show hosts, writers, producers, etc. There is even an opening for a junior producer!
The position of show host requires you to be very comfortable in front of people. You must be able to relate to your audience and talk about anything and everything!
As you may know, Ellen has always had one main set guest per episode. This person would typically do or say something funny that made Ellen laugh really hard and then she would respond with her own joke/topic and it would make the other person laugh again.
This process was repeated until everyone involved gave each other such big laughs that they ended up crying. It is truly a beautiful thing to watch.
That’s why having a strong relationship with your inner child is so important. I will go into more detail about this in another article but for now just remember that if you can’t help crack a smile, chances are others won’t either.
Hosts of Real Time with Bill Maher
While some people may consider comedian Tim Conway to be past his prime, he is in fact still very popular. He has been practicing his craft for over sixty years by putting emphasis on jokes that most people can relate to. His way of telling stories through humor has made him quite successful since his career began.
Maher’s sense of humor is known to be edgy at times. This includes making fun of almost everyone including politicians, religious figures, and even his own show guests when appropriate. An example of this would be when he had former Vice President Joe Biden as a guest and joked about how much money Biden makes being paid to tell bad jokes.
He also does not shy away from controversy or issues that are heavily debated. Many of his episodes focus on politics and social issues such as racism, feminism, homosexuality, and more. These discussions often get pretty heated.
His style of comedy definitely attracts an audience. People who enjoy his comedic timing and ability to make you laugh hard will probably watch his show once it airs. But, there are others out there just like him who want to see some changes needed to improve our country.
Most important, he encourages individuals to try to agree to disagree. This doesn’t always work in the political world, but it is worth a shot. We all should strive to respect each other’s opinions instead of trying to prove which one is right.
Hosts of The Jim Gaffigan Show
Many people enjoy listening to The Jim Gaffigan show because they find his humor relatable. He is known for making fun of religious figures, politicians, and other prominent individuals or groups.
Gaffan has received significant media coverage due to some of his controversial comments. In August 2018 he made an off-the-cuff comment about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) that was widely reported upon.
He said, “I don’t like their dress” and proceeded to describe what kind of clothing Mormons wear as not being very attractive. This led many to accuse him of being racist towards members of the LDS church.
Since then he has apologized for this remark but it did not go away too well. Some felt that his apology didn’t quite ring true or were simply not asked at all in interviews with reporters.
His critics claim that his statements are meant to hurt the feelings of minorities within the community which is something he openly admits to trying to do. They say his jokes promote racism and Christianity is a white power religion.
Hosts of She’s Gotta Have It
As mentioned earlier, there are many ways to be involved in community service. Some people choose to spend their time volunteering at places outside of work, such as by donating blood or serving food for an organization that benefits the community.
Other professionals find creative ways to give back by hosting events or activities for other organizations, educating attendees about important issues, or producing educational content to help others learn more about those issues.
News show hosts are professional speakers who get paid to talk about current topics and influence large audiences. Many of these hosts have their own radio shows, which allow them to focus solely on their field of expertise while also earning good money.
