This seventh edition of Broadcast Journalism continues its long tradition of covering the basics of broadcasting from gathering news sources, interviewing, putting together a programme, news writing, reporting, editing, working in the studio, conducting live reports and more. The authors have brought the material further up to date with the integration of social media, uses of mobile technology, the emergence of user-generated content and updated examples, illustrations and case studies throughout. End-of-chapter exercises are also included.

Extended chapters on ethics, responsibilities, interviewing, mobile newsgathering and filming.
