As a TV presenter, choosing content for showreels is a tricky business, especially when you present a magazine show with frequent segues between light and shade. What to showcase? The heartfelt moments, the big celeb names or the unplanned, funny stuff? Then there’s the interviews with ordinary people that often provide the most extraordinary TV moments, yep you know the ones; the ones that stop you in your tracks and you can’t take your eyes off the screen. These are often unplanned and very much organic. You also want to illustrate the relationship and chemistry you have with your co-anchor, the occasions where you pushed yourself well outside your comfort zone (there are plenty of those!) or the episodes where an entire running order changes because of a breaking story.
Well, hopefully the showreels here will provide you with a little piece of all the above. From my role as Reporter/Presenter on Ireland AM and now as Anchor on Saturday AM and Sunday AM to my voiceover reels, they’re all below. Just click on the links and turn your sound up!
