A microphone is a critical component of broadcasting applications because it is used to capture and share audio content from presenter to audience using a one-to-many model. The best microphones for radio broadcasts are those that emphasize and value of high speech intelligibility, which is a top priority for event announcers, news reports, radio hosts, sports announcers, and television anchors. Most microphones used for broadcasting come in one of three varieties, depending on intended use: a boundary mic, a handheld mic, or a headworn mic. Traditionally, broadcasts have relied on wired microphones, but there also many comparable wireless microphone options available. When working on any broadcasting application, audio professionals have a variety of microphone options and styles to choose from.
