This book examines the features of writing in two journalistic media : television and radio. The monograph is relevant not only to students and teachers of journalism but also to those interested generally in the field of composition studies. It offers a highly specific analysis of the differences among the writing styles for these two media-differences that are often felt by student and teacher alike but rarely described in detail. Comparative in orientation, the book examines each of the two media in all major sections : Leads; Story Structure; Sentence Structure; Word Choice; Names, Quotes and Attribution. Each of these sections discusses a number of distinct points; three columns, one for each of the media, highlight the comparisons. The section on "leads," for instance, looks at summary leads, datelines, beginning with names, the umbrella lead, an item lead, an anecdotal lead, a delayed lead, a buried lead, question leads and quote leads.
The author has put his effort in this book to make every section more clearer and understandable. Wherever necessary examples are also given, undersigned is hopeful enough that this work of him would be beneficial to the readers.
