Thoroughly revised and greatly expanded, this new edition is even more helpful than the classic first edition. The 1997 revision of Writing Broadcast News -- Shorter, Sharper, Stronger is 40 percent longer -- and even richer and smoother. It was written for working newspeople, and it is widely accepted in the broadcasting industry as a professional handbook. Many college teachers have adopted it as a textbook.
