Television Production & Broadcast Journalism provides students with basic technical skills necessary to enter the television production industry as a production assistant, and introduces broadcast journalism theory. The text provides an overview of the equipment, job responsibilities, and techniques involved in both traditional studio production and remote location work. The activities and processes involved in each phase of production are presented and reinforced with realistic examples, numerous photos showing students in actual production situations, and engaging student activities. Broadcast journalism coverage includes ethics and news judgment, types of stories, news writing, preparing news packages, and conducting interviews. The broadcast journalism concepts address skills and qualities required in the industry, but also incorporate classroom-appropriate standards and practices. The text places a strong emphasis on the importance of vocabulary and the correct use of technical terms. In addition to the glossary at the end of the textbook, a running glossary within the chapters provides an immediate formal definition of terms, as they are addressed in the text of the chapter. Talk the Talk features explain the difference in meaning between consumer and industry-specific terms, and clarify the proper use of industry terminology. Proper use of industry terms is an important factor in becoming a successful television production professional.
