Provides the practical techniques and theoretical knowledge that underpin the fundamental skills of a journalist. It also takes a highly modern approach, as the convergence of broadcast, print and online media require the learning of new skills and methods. The book is written from an international perspective - with examples from around the world in recognition of the global marketplace for today's media.



This is an essential text for students on journalism courses and professionals looking for a reference that covers the skill, technology and knowledge required for a digital and converged media age. The book's essence lies in the way essential theories such as ethics and law, are woven into practical newsgathering and reporting techniques, as well as advice on management skills for journalists, providing the wide intellectual foundation which gives credibility to reporting.

He brings clarity to the process of journalism education: learning, practising and managing. ...Students will find this book inspirational and an important resource of reading and knowledge.'
Tim Crook, Head of Radio at the Department of Media and Communications, Goldsmiths College, University of London.

"This book is a must for all journalism departments, as well as for practitioners who want to maintain a leading edge over their competitors."
