About the eBook

"Having worked closely with Brad Schultz, I know he has important insights to pass along to students in the area of broadcast news production. This seems to be a fairly comprehensive effort that covers many of the aspects of news production that other texts have ignored.

"Brad Schultz has brought his solid professional experience to bear in putting together a highly readable how-to for students aspiring to take their place behind the camera. Broadcast News Producing is full of useful tips as well as providing important grounding in the fundamentals of producing a successful newscast."

-Beth E. Barnes, University of Kentucky


 Broadcast News Producing is one of the first comprehensive texts in its field.

This text lays the groundwork for good producing, giving the reader an insider′s perspective on newsroom structure and the producer′s role. It takes students step-by-step through the producing process, providing a guide to putting together a successful newscast. The book also addresses critical issues that face today′s producers, including ethics, newsroom leadership, staff management, resource management, newsroom relationships, and career planning.
