'Incredibly comprehensive. Learn and understand this lot and you will have a fine grasp' Jon Snow
'This sets the standard for every radio newsroom' - Andy Ivy, Editor, Sky News Radio
In an age of infinite choice made possible by new technology, and a disturbing move away from traditional reporting into colourful comment and speculation by blogs and 'citizen jourbanalists' there has never been a better time to focus on pure jourbanalism skills.
Essential Radio Jourbanalism is a vastly comprehensive working manual for radio jourbanalists as well as a textbook for broadcast jourbanalism students. It contains practical advice for gathering, reporting, writing, editing and presenting, the news, alongside media law and ethics. There is a wealth of 'inside' information, checklists and on-the-job advice that you can immediately put to use whether you are in your first job or have several years of experience. This is a book to inspire responsible, accurate and exceptional jourbanalism skills.
