by

Heat and Light: Advice for the Next Generation of Journalists Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Heat & Light, a legendary journalist and a journalism professor join forces to offer a one-of-a-kind guide for our next generation of great journalists.  Drawing on the authors' decades of experience at the top of the field and inspired directly by beginners’ most frequently asked questions, Heat & Light offers invaluable advice on such topics as:

 

·        balancing drama and information (‘heat’ vs. ‘light’)

·        generating and evaluating story ideas

·        the secrets to crafting good ledes

·        creating strong packages for the internet, tv, and radio

·        the specific requirements of writing for print and broadcast

·        the art of the interview

 

Along the way, the authors share countless anecdotes from their own storied careers—and discuss larger questions such as the rapidly growing role of digital media and what it means for today’s aspiring journalists.

 

Includes an extensive "reporter’s toolbox" of checklists, techniques, and resources

Synopsis:

Packed with practical wisdom, rubber-on-the-road tips, and never-before-heardanecdotes, this guide to creating good journalism is required reading for anyaspiring reporter and editor.

Synopsis:

At a time when mainstream news media are hemorrhaging and doomsayers are predicting the death of journalism, take heart: the First Amendment is alive and well in small towns across America. In Emus Loose in Egnar, award-winning journalist Judy Muller takes the reader on a grassroots tour of rural American newspapers, from an Indian reservation in Montana to the Alaska tundra to Marthaand#8217;s Vineyard, and discovers that many weeklies are not just surviving, but thriving.
and#160;
In these small towns, stories can range from club news to Klan news, from broken treaties to broken hearts, from banned books to escaped emus; they document the births, deaths, crimes, sports, and local shenanigans that might seem to matter only to those who live there. And yet, as this book shows us, these and#8220;littleand#8221; stories create a mosaic of American life that tells us a great deal about who we areand#8212;what moves us, angers us, amuses us.
and#160;
Filled with characters both quirky and courageous, the book is a heartening reminder that there is a different kind of and#8220;bottom lineand#8221; in the hearts of journalists who keep churning out good stories, week after week, for the corniest of reasons: that our freedoms depend on it.and#160;
