Summary "Writing for Broadcast News makes the storytelling elements of a broadcast news story - whether for radio or TV - immediately accessible and understandable to beginning broadcast writers and journalism students. Its step-by-step approach defines the parts necessary to structuring a story with a clear beginning, middle, and end by establishing a definite framework into which the anchor lead, the reporter narrative, and the actualities - or sound bites - fit to form a seamless, compelling whole. Starting with the idea that people are most interested in people, no matter what the issue, this book emphasizes the human element and shows how to put a face on the story at the earliest possible moment. It uses case histories of news reports to allow beginners to more easily learn the journalistic process - and how to maintain its integrity - and also features quizzes, exercises based on actual news stories, and critical evaluation checklists
Writing for Broadcast News gives practical advice to guide aspiring broadcast reporters and writers toward becoming effective storytellers."--BOOK JACKET
