Now in its tenth edition, Reporting for the Media continues to be an essential resource for journalism instructors. A sweeping introduction to newswriting and reporting, this classic text focuses on the basics of reporting--how to become more curious about the world, generate provocative ideas, gather vital information and write incisive stories.

The authors emphasize such central topics as grammar basics, and common ethical dilemmas. In addition to its excellent pedagogy and coverage of the converged newsroom, the text also explores a variety of advanced topics including broadcast writing, law, ethics and public relations.
