CNN Talent Coach Lenny Bourin has been called a Svengali by senior management in the news business for his abilities to help anchors and reporters be their best on camera. His techniques were on full display last Wednesday when he came to visit Professor Sissel McCarthy’s Studio News Production class. Bourin told students sitting in the anchor chair for the first time to think of themselves as pilots. “You’re the voice from the cockpit… and the most important thing is to be authoritative and conversational at the same time,” said Bourin, an award winning journalist who spent most of his career as a producer at ABC News.
