Continuity Announcers


Experienced Television and Radio Continuity Announcers.

Continuity Announcers broadcast messages about forthcoming programmes or other announcements between the programmes on TV or radio. For example on BBC1, years ago, the announcers would speak over a logo of a revolving globe. These days the animations are more varied - often of real people going about their business or activities. For Channel 4 this would be a scene resolving in a giant 4.

A continuity announcer tells viewers and listeners which channel they are watching or listening to, what they are about to see or hear, and what programmes are available on another related channel or channels. For example, BBC Radio 4 would talk about a programme on Radio 4 Xtra. Or at the end of a programme a BBC1 continuity announcer would also mention programmes available on BBC2 or BBC4. If there is a technical problem, they would inform the viewer or listener of the issue and if its a major breakdown, you will hear them play music or introducer a short filler until this is resolved.

In the UK, the only radio station that still uses continuity announcers is BBC Radio 4. They also read the news too.
