Review:

I will be using the book as a text in my spring semester Electronic News Gathering and Production class . . . I really like the 'real' language of the authors. I believe it will be an appropriate take-along text for my students who, after my course, will be one course away from emerging in the professional world. (Dan Keever, University of Georgia)

The Broadcast Journalism Handbook is truly more than a newsroom survival guide―it's a survival guide for the profession of broadcast journalism. In plain language and with plenty of common sense, it leads the student through the steps of getting that first job and keeping it, what counts in the newsroom, how to put stories together, and how to do it all responsibly and ethically. (Teresa Ponte, Florida International University)

This book has an insider's view on the workings of the newsroom and shows the specific demands of television news, featuring many anecdotes compiled by working journalists. If you want to be a broadcast news journalist, you should read this to erase any doubt about entering the field. (Patricia Hastings, University of Wisconsin at Madison)

This is a very accessible, practical guide for beginning TV news professionals. I found myself saying 'yes' or nodding in agreement as I read! It presents many realities of TV news in frank, straightforward terms―you can tell it's written by people who have been there. This book would be great to have in a senior-level class, when some people are getting ready for TV careers and others are still wondering if that's the job for them. (Lee Hood, University of Colorado and veteran TV news producer)

Whew! If I'd read this book 25 years ago I may have ended up taking that insurance job! The Broadcast Journalism Handbook does an outstanding job letting news business 'newbies' know what to expect when they get that coveted first job. If this includes you, read this book and get a running start into a wild and wonderful career. (Jim Benemann, anchor, KCNC-TV-Denver)
