Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[WRITING AND REPORTING NEWS is] A really good text for beginning journalism students with enough there for those who want to advance further than the basics. It's particularly helpful at universities, such as mine, that do not have journalism schools and where journalism is one part of a larger communication program."

"[WRITING AND REPORTING NEWS is] a book rich with theory and real working examples. The examples are strong, useful and relevant to teaching."

"[WRITING AND REPORTING NEWS is] a good text that stays current with the journalism field. The updates every couple of years reflect ongoing industry trends."
