Book Description

Announcing for Broadcasting and the Internet is the standard text for traditional broadcasters and emerging pioneers. While many still pursue careers in traditional fields such as television and radio news announcing, broadcast performance has expanded to Internet radio, podcasting, home voice-over production, and performance on YouTube and other Internet video venues.

This text is an update of the classic text Announcing. The practical guide to mastering the techniques and mechanics of broadcast announcing remains, updated to give readers the ability to produce their own portfolio of performance products and get started in the career they want. It covers audio and video editing programs, new streaming media, and how to develop a powerful, consistent, and noteworthy speaking voice.

I've used several broadcast announcing texts, but this one is superior! It's an easy read, provides lots of practical information and exercises, and is one of those books that students could and should keep and use during their careers. I highly recommend this text for any broadcast announcing class.
