The Broadcast Journalism Handbook is an essential guide to students and practitioners in broadcast journalism, general journalism and media studies.

Journalism is a fast-growing industry and students are increasingly studying this as part of their courses, or as a stand-alone course with a view to starting a career in this sector. This book fills a large gap in the market for reading on such courses and modules. In addition, the book will prove valuable to those with a general interest in the industry, with exciting contributions from well-known media personalities.
