WRITING NEWS FOR LOCAL RADIO

SIMON FORD    Book Number: 74758    Product format: Paperback

Clear and convenient, this description of what to aim for when writing news for local radio is invaluable for anyone seeking down-to-earth guidance in a challenging and competitive profession. Here is a volume that manages to be of practical help, both for students learning their craft and for established broadcasters developing their technique in writing concise but informative radio news scripts. Authentic, real-life examples such as the Danielle Beccan shooting are cited throughout. The book starts with the basics of English grammar, with tips on using pronouns in order to be impartial, and hints on structuring your story. There is a list of the top ten techniques, such as addressing a single listener, keeping sentences short and limiting the number of ideas in one sentence. The book then goes on to tackle pitfalls such as Americanisms, legal language and disputed pronunciations, and discusses the use of slang. Many more examples than it is possible to cram into a limited amount of space are given in the extensive appendices. 301 paperback pages with illus and book list.
