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.
