Journalism book re-released

A popular manual for professional and student radio journalists has been re-released.

Essential Radio Journalism, written by consultant Paul Chantler and BBC journalist Peter Stewart, was originally published nearly 20 years ago. Previous versions have been translated into Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Russian.

Paul Chantler, senior partner at United Radio Consultants, says: “I wrote the first edition of the book in 1991. It’s now tripled in size. We’re very proud that it’s become the definitive handbook for BBC and commercial radio journalists as well as being used at colleges all over the world including the US and Australia.”

Peter Stewart says: “This is a book to inspire responsible, accurate and exceptional journalism skills. There is a wealth of tips and techniques you can immediately put to use whether you’re in your first job or have years of experience.”

The new version contains practical advice for gathering, reporting, writing, editing and presenting news, alongside new chapters on technicalities, media law and ethics.

The Foreword has been written by Jon Snow, presenter of Channel 4 News, who started his career in radio. He writes: “Despite all the elements of the technological revolution, to my mind radio remains the most stimulating and exciting medium of all.”

He goes on to recommend the book saying, “Learn and understand this lot and you will have a fine grasp.”

Others who have endorsed the book include Rod McKenzie, Editor of Radio 1’s Newsbeat, Andy Ivy, Editor of Sky News Radio, and James Rea, Head of News for GMG Radio.
