MEDIA REVIEWS

"John Larson's passion for telling stories that matter finds the heart-pounding dramas in the lives we too often don't notice."

Andrew Lehren, New York Times

It's true that some people are born storytellers, while others practice and study ceaselessly to improve their work. John Larson is a rare combination of the two.
"I watched his storytelling for more than 30 years. It started good and then got better. Even more amazingly, he can tell you how to make that happen."
Howard Weaver, two-time Pulitzer Prize Winner, McClatchy


"I would argue that John Larson is the Tom Hanks or Denzel Washington of TV journalism. He is not a one hit wonder, or even a one-decade wonder. His body of excellent work stretches more than 30 years. I can count on one hand a list of whom I consider to be his peers, and have a couple of fingers left unused."

Al Tompkins, Senior Faculty, Poynter Institute, USA

"This is a must-read in my classes! The writing is clear and conversational and captures the essence of strong visual storytelling, being prepared and curious. The lessons in this book transcend the classroom and this text has become the bible for doing it right."

-Jerry Gibbs, Curry College, USA

Journalists have important stories to tell. Stories that can provide a check and a balance to those in power, bring to light societal wrongs, and empower citizens to feel as if they are a part of the process. Television Field Production and Reporting brings together best practices for budding broadcast journalists, and teaches them how to make their stories sing with strong visuals and words.

- Ann Strahle, Associate Professor, University of Illinois Springfield, USA
