    anchoring

    If someone will be anchoring a new programme on a TV channel , may it refer to any TV programme or only to a talk show?

    Neither of these. An anchor or anchor person is the broadcaster who is the chief reporter on a news program. He or she also introduces other reporters and may comment on their reports.

    Talk shows have hosts.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I looked up a verb "anchor" in a dictionary
    Do we ever say it like this "She will anchor the new morning news show."??

    Re: anchoring

    Yes, you anchor a news show. Do you know the difference between a new show and a talk show?

    Oprah is a talk show. Dr. Phil is a talk show. The Tonight Show is a talk show.
    The 6:00 news is a new show.
