    Default Future Tense and Passive Voice

    Are you afraid that Eason will be enthralled by a female news broadcaster?

    Is this grammatically correct?
    Can I use the future tense with passive voice together?
    And should I omit "news" when I use broadcaster in the sentence?
    I'm not sure whether it's reluctant or not.

    Please advise. Thanks.

    'will be' is fine.
    Try, newscaster instead of 'news broadcaster'.
    Try, redundant instead of 'reluctant'.
