Introduction

Seeing is believing and hearing is often the next best thing. Broadcast media is a strong force in our society when it comes to choices for news, and television is certainly ahead of radio in that regard. These mediums still face challenges in the process of gathering and delivering the news. This week we will explore broadcast news media outlets and the management of them. You will also work with your news teams to create scripts for a television broadcast and a radio broadcast for your audience.
