The book: Writing for Broadcast Journalists (Second Edition)
Writing for Broadcast Journalists, part of the Routledge Media Skills series, is the only guide devoted to writing for TV and Radio news and is widely used by broadcast professionals and university media courses. The second edition (2010) has a special section on writing Online News, as well as examples of good broadcast scriptwriting from some of the best in the business, and a list of ‘dangerous words’ and clichés best avoided.
Author Rick Thompson (MA English Oxon) has more than 25 years experience in broadcast news, and has interviewed many top professionals about writing techniques for this book. He says, "There are many brilliant writers working in radio and TV journalism today …. unfortunately there are many more who do not achieve this standard. Too many writers are content to deploy sterile phrases and tedious clichés. Blatant inaccuracies are endemic on the airwaves. I hope that the readers of this book will be inspired to use English knowingly, correctly, and above all, creatively."
Writing for Broadcast Journalists (second edition) is the authoritative guide for all who have to write scripts to be spoken aloud, including public presentations, speeches and corporate audio-visual productions, as well as broadcast news and current affairs.
