JRN431 Writing the TV News Script

Lead Faculty: Dr. Sara-Ellen L. Amster Ph.D

Course Description

This advanced course in broadcast journalism builds on skills developed in JRN 430 (Reporting for TV News). Students learn to distinguish between writing for print journalism and for broadcast. This course covers writing scripts that distinguish between the short, clear prose for print as opposed to writing for radio with its emphasis on spoken words, or TV, which requires weaving together words and visuals.
