Australian Broadcast Journalism is a practical guide to broadcast journalism. It focuses on the skills journalists need to succeed and looks at how these skills are applied in the different broadcast media. Throughout the book, it explores how to adapt traditional skills into the onlinejournalism sphere. It introduces students to broadcast journalism by exposing them to the thoughts and experiences of practicing journalists across all the broadcast media - radio, television and the Web. The book focuses specifically on skills for broadcast media in Australia and is relevant not just for any budding journalist wanting a career in radio and television news, current affairs, and talkback radio, but for any journalist now required to prepare audio and video content for their website.The core journalism skills of information gathering, and the technical skills required to record, edit and present that material compellingly in any medium are essential for the practice of journalism. Today's journalists are expected to be skilled across all media and platforms and the bookprepares students to work in the changing media landscape of our time.
