Television and Radio Announcing, 11e
Stuart Hyde, San Francisco State University
Television and Radio Announcing takes a practical, career-oriented approach to the study of broadcast performance by successfully blending the coverage of theory with the practice of announcing. Now in its eleventh edition, this classic text offers the broadest coverage of announcing available today. Hailed for its compelling, conversational writing style, Hyde’s work offers timeless and relevant information to new broadcasting students while emphasizing the most successful techniques in the field. The new edition has been revised to reflect the recent technology and market changes affecting announcers today and retains the same overriding goal of previous editions: to help students become more effective and responsible communicators.
New and classic features to this text include:
“Checklist” boxes throughout the text give step-by-step instructions to students who are just learning the basics of announcing.
Scripts throughout each chapter offer students the opportunity to immediately practice the concepts they are learning about within the text.
“Spotlight” boxes are written by professionals in the announcing field and give tips on how to improve voice personality, how to sound like a local, and more.
New “Student Voices” boxes are essays written by real students who offer a personal slant on several key topics including: Podcasting, Internet radio, YouTube and MTV VJs.
