It also offers indispensable advice on key technical aspects of the job, from how to handle a microphone to how wire services work.

Throughout the Handbook you’ll find dozens of fascinating examples from 80 years of top-notch broadcast journalism of every type―from war correspondence to human interest stories―as well as memorable and insightful quotes by many of the greats, including Walter Cronkite, Edward R. Murrow, and Charles Kuralt. You’ll also find helpful sidebars providing relevant style guidelines for news features, writing intro sound bites, rules for handling quotations, and much more.
