Description

The single universal bit of advice that working journalists give students is "learn to write well". Solid writing is the key to any successful and solid broadcast news operation. In Writing and Producing Television News, Second Edition author Eric Gormly uses contemporary news events as an engaging backdrop to teach students the fundamentals of writing news for television and cable. Author Gormly draws on his extensive background as a television journalist to explain how real newsrooms work. The text reviews basic grammar, introduces students to industry-specific terminology and the particular rules for TV newswriting, appraises the basics of a television news story, and reveals how television writing differs from writing for other media. The core of the book develops various story formats, and gives step-by-step instruction on how to transform basic information into properly scripted, solid stories. Included in this edition are the latest in script formatting; an in-depth look at new writing styles; interviews with and observations of working journalists from major television markets; an expanded chapter detailing the process of producing a television newscast; and up-to-date information about applying for jobs and internships in today's television marketplace. Newly expanded, packed with student exercises for hands-on learning, and fully illustrated with photos, line drawings, and charts, Writing and Producing Television News, Second Edition prepares students to perform from the moment they hit the newsroom.
