Careers in Television

by Howard J. Blumenthal

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7-12-- An excellent guide to a variety of positions in television. Writing, technical, news, performance, and production careers are covered in lively, interesting biographies of successful figures. Each section concludes with advice on how to prepare for and seek out a job in a particular arena, stressing equally hands-on experience and college or other educational training. Black-and-white photos add to the appeal. Terminology within specific areas is highlighted in ``lingo'' columns; these definitions are helpful, although their location is a bit annoying. Those readers seeking further information will find addresses for production companies and networks and advice on contacting them. There is also a list of books and other publications. This does not replace the informative yet dry Opportunities in Television and Video Careers (VGM, 1988) by Shonan F. R. Noronha but can supplement it. Practical tips, an upbeat style, and relevant subject matter make it an outstanding resource. --Diane P. Tuccillo, Mesa Public Library, AZ
