About the book:

Broadcast News Writing, Reporting, and Producing, 4th Edition examines the skills, techniques, and challenges of writing and reporting for broadcast journalism. Along with complete coverage of the fundamentals, the text presents up-to-date examples and issues through actual scripts and interviews with the people who bring us the news.

The book emphasizes real-life situations, and examines the problems that reporters, writers, assignment editors, and producers face every day. Each chapter contains exercises for writing, review, and discussion so that students can learn and apply what they’ve read.

This new edition contains material on embedded journalists, their preparation (journalist boot camp), including the late CNN reporter David Bloom, and their impact on the news. It includes new examples of tabloid journalism and expanded information on the state of terrorism and crime reporting today.

What people say:

A strength of this book is the way it uses samples of reporting from well-known journalists, reproducing their scripts and using them as teaching aids. If you aspire to work in broadcast journalism, this will teach the techniques at their most polished and professional.” — Writing Magazine
