Overview

A comprehensive guide, International Radio Journalism explores the history and practice of radio in America, Britain, Europe and many other countries around the world. The book details training and professional standards in writing, presentation, technology, editorial ethics and media law and examines the major public sector broadcast networks such as the BBC, CBC, NPR and ABC as well as the work of commercial and small public radio stations.

Timothy Crook investigates the way in which news reporting has been influenced by governments and media conglomerates and identifies an undercurrent of racial and sexual discrimination throughout the history of radio news. With chapters on media law for broadcast journalists, the implications of multi-media and new technologies, digital applications in radio news, and glossaries which cover the skills of voice presentaion, writing radio news and broadcast vocabulary, it is an essential resource for anyone interested in radio.
