Broadcast News Writing.
Smeyak, Paul G.
This book is designed to introduce the fundamentals of broadcast news writing. The first three chapters concern leads, organization of material, and grammar and style. Chapter four brings the news writer into contact with the technological and aesthetic demands of radio and discusses interviews, lead-ins, and tag lines. Chapter five deals with television news writing and the production process, which affects news content and story organization. Remaining chapters concern news judgments; news sources; news organization, formats, and formulas; and legal judgments of relevance in broadcasting. Appendixes include a glossary of terms, a discussion of common writing errors, the Radio Television News Directors Association Code of Broadcast News Ethics, the Radio Code and the Television Code (both published by the Code Authority of the National Association of Broadcasters), and a statement of principles of the bench, bar, and press of the state of Kansas.
