Award-winning Nigerian TV presenter Stephanie Coker is set to launch a presenting course next month.
The two-day course will feature intensive studies on how to be a presenter, some of which will focus on using a teleprompter, script writing, studio and location presenting and interview techniques.
According to Coker, the maiden edition of the programme aims to teach participants what it takes to be a TV presenter in the digital era. It will take place on September 1 and 2 costing N50,000 (US$138). Those interested can apply by registering here.
The masterclass comes a few months after TV presenter Bolanle Olukanni also launched a similar course teaching the right approach to TV presenting.
