Hosts are the characters who lead the individual segments. These characters are given names like Dora Smarmy, and star in the segments. While hosts often are the main characters of their segments, in shows like Ear We Are they are nonexistent voices called Announcers.
In order to be a Host, the characters need to meet these qualifications. If they do not meet the qualifications they are an Announcer:
- Have a name
- Have a physical form
- Affect the show somehow
