An anchoring speech is a strange request because most anchors are the basis by which a program is held together, so they will do some aspects of the show themselves and then pass over to other people in what appears to be a seamless manner.

If that is what you want to do then you should make a greeting and then perhaps introduce some of the things that are going to be on the show. To get some better ideas you could watch, or listen to a variety of shows that have anchors on them and see how they start their proceedings.

  • Speech
If it really is a speech that you are after, this is more formal than what an anchor usually does so maybe you could have a look on the Internet for some ideas. There are plenty of sites that provide free sample speeches, and although these are not going to be exactly what you want, you may get some ideas and then you will be able to tweak it so it is better suited for your purpose.

If you want a tailor made, bespoke speech, then you will also be able to find someone on the Internet who can write this for you, but naturally this will not be a free service.

  • Anchors
It isn't just what anchors say that makes them good at what they do; they also have to sound and look good. This doesn't mean that they have to be the most gorgeous human being on the planet, but that they are well presented.

The majority of anchors also seem to have their clothes, hair and makeup quite discreet so even though they look good the viewer isn't distracted by what they look like or what they are wearing.

When you are about to give a presentation, Practice is the single most important factor contributing to a good presentation. A poorly presented talk reflects upon both you and your attitude towards the material and audience, so always make time for practice runs.
