Broadcast/Cable Copywriting is the most widely used text for learning how to write all types of copy for the electronic media. This text addresses the basic rules and techniques common to broadcast writing with a depth of coverage unmatched by its competitors, but without assuming any prior media writing, production, or advertising experience on the part of the reader. The 7th Edition constructs an expansive communication context for copywriting: from basic station IDs and liners to cross-media campaign creation. Along the way, Broadcast/Cable Copywriting introduces students to hundreds of current and classic examples of effective copywriting, including scripts, storyboards, and photoboards.

  • Begins with an orienting chapter that reveals copywriter work situations and concludes with a campaign creation chapter that pulls together the key techniques introduced throughout the book.
  • Includes more than 250 message examples, many of which are new to this edition, providing students with exposure to cutting edge creativity.
  • Intersperses discussions of Internet writing throughout the text, illustrating the interconnectedness of electronic media writing for the student.
  • Includes updated content and referenced insights from top industry practitioners around the world,provides students with a broad range of examples.

Part I examines the copywriting marketplace, tools of the trade, audience, and regulatory and stylistic constraints. Part II probes radio's key elements, commercials, and additional endeavors, and Part III explores television. Part IV delves into the interlocking process of campaign construction, first for the conventional radio/television campaign, and then for the more specialized creation of public service appeals.
