Guide to Professional Radio & TV Newscasting.
Siller, Robert C.
Written for those who want to get started in the field of broadcast journalism, this practical self-study guide discusses all the basic elements needed and shows how the professionals on both local and network levels prepare for a newscast. The content encompasses how a newsman writes his copy, how he "plays" his story, and how writing style is developed. Also the guide explains how the professionals mark and time a script, how they "road map" for easy delivery on the air, how they stopwatch and back-time, and the various ways audio tape is used to advantage in broadcast journalism. A discussion of the fine points of television news begin with an examination of the services produced by the medium; information is provided about a typical TV newscast "line up", how news stories, commercials, promos, film and tape inserts are blended into a script, and how last minute revisions are handled. The elements of the TV newscast -- the script format, production problems and techniques, film and slide production, and the use of videotape--are also presented. Finally, TV reporting and interviewing techniques, film and videotape editing, the duties and requirements of anchorman, and career opportunities for a "new man" are discussed. (Author/SH)
