June 2008[edit]

There is a tag at the top stating about how the article doesn't cite any references or sources. However:

  • I added a source, but how many are required to get rid of the message?
  • There are 2 tag templates on the page which essentially say the same thing. Shouldn't one be removed?

Took care of it - replace old templates with a new one. Still needs more citations. Cgingold (talk) 09:54, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Remote Control for Laptops ("Presenter")[edit]

What's the device called in proper English? It's some kind of wireless mouse (most certainly using Bluetooth), used for switching between slides of a presentation, often with a built-in red laser pointer. In Germany these are informally called "Presenters". -- 80.136.99.113 (talk) 13:39, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Proposed merger of Radio personality[edit]

I propose that the very small, unsourced page Radio personality should be merged and redirected here. Although that phrase has a few hundred incoming links, an unknown number of those are piped as "presenter" anyway (e.g. 3rd para of this section). – Fayenatic London 20:22, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Oppose This article ("Presenter") is just as poorly sourced: a single source to verify that "MC" stands for "master of ceremonies", a subject with its own separate article. This article, particularly the lead, is also too broad and too UK-centric to serve as a worldwide umbrella term for all types of hosts (museum and university exhibitors have little in common with Howard Stern). "Presenter" is rarely (if ever) used in American English to identify broadcasters; "personality" is by far the preferred term. Note that basic Google search yields 4.5 million results for "radio personality", only 1.7 mil for "radio presenter". Similarly, Google news search for "radio personality" yields 9,600+ results (nearly all American), while search for "radio presenter" yields some 1,400+ results. If anything, all broadcast/media content should be placed in a separate article, and given its relative lack of an online presence, such an article should *not* have the word "presenter" in the title.

Proposed merger from Television presenter[edit]

The article Television presenter seems to be a fork. In ictu oculi (talk) 05:59, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

The interwikis all point here, not there. In ictu oculi (talk) 06:01, 17 September 2013 (UTC)
