Reporting and Writing on Journalism's New Frontier teaches students the fundamentals of good reporting tactics and gives them a solid command of basic writing techniques.

The book emphasizes practical skills a good journalist needs before even beginning to report, explains the kind of stories that work best for each medium, explores good news-gathering habits, and describes successful interviewing tactics.

It provides clear guidelines for quality writing including the importance of organizing a story before writing, purging cliches, redundancies, and euphemisms, creating great headlines, and writing with clarity.

Individual chapters are devoted to the specific needs of writing for radio, television, and the web. The book also contains sound advice on libel and slander laws that are essential information for avoiding litigation.

Reporting and Writing on Journalism's New Frontier is a concise, current, engaging exploration of practical tools and techniques that writers can employ immediately and use every day. The book is designed for multimedia journalism courses.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Chapman University's program in television and broadcast journalism has been an avid and satisfied user of Jeff Rowe's book. In clear language and with relevant examples, he explains the do's and don'ts and tricks of the trade of writing for broadcast. The text deftly reinforces to young, aspiring journalists in an increasingly technological and changing media environment that one constant remains: writing is paramount." -Pete Weitzner, Professor of Broadcast Journalism, Chapman University, Orange, CA.

"Jeff Rowe's book is a complete, inexpensive resource for multimedia reporting students. Combining Rowe's book with the Associated Press stylebook gives students a complete basic reporting and writing library for half the price of other popular reporting textbooks." -Robert R. Mercer, Retired Chair, Journalism Department, Cypress College, CA.; Fulbright Scholar, Convergence Journalism

"In a word, great. The book should be alongside the keyboard of every news writer in the country." -Douglas Perret Starr, Journalism Professor, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas and Former Associated Press Writer

"A wonderful book." -Bruce Horovitz, Former Staff Writer, USA Today and Los Angeles Times
