Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Professional journalists have an exciting but sometimes dangerous career. They travel to different places in order to learn facts about people or events. They ask questions to find out who, what, when, where, why, and how. They must get the information quickly so that it can be reported. They write stories that are either published in newspapers or magazines (print journalists) or posted on the Internet (online journalists). Stories written by broadcast journalists are reported either on television or on the radio. This book provides information about the different types of journalists, including those mentioned above, sports journalists and photojournalists. Exciting events and important contributions made by famous journalists (e.g., Tim Russert, Jim McKay) are also included in this informative book. There are colorful photographs on just about every page, and the book concludes with a list of fascinating facts about careers in journalism. Anyone who likes to write or who likes talking to people may consider a career in journalism; they, in particular, will benefit from this book. Part of the "Cool Careers: On the Go" series.
