Poll Results: It’s Acceptable to Occasionally Share Personal Information On the Air

The results are in from our poll about newscasters sharing personal information on the air, and so far voters — more than half of you — think that the occasional personal topics are a perfectly acceptable way to fill a few minutes of air time. Here’s the current breakdown:

  • 57.95%: Yes. Newscasters shouldn’t shy away from personal topics here and there.
  • 42.05%: No. Newscasters should just deliver the news.
