  • “The competition for the attention of potential audiences, and the problem of audience appeal, has become an increasingly important aspect of TV journalism. The aim of this article is to present a conceptual framework for studies of TV journalism as communication; including different intentions, strategies applied to appeal to viewers, processes of production, bases for audience involvement, roles and relations. I differentiate three modes of communication: information, storytelling and attractions, and argue that this trichotomy is more fruitful and analytically developed, compared to other conceptualizations such as the dichotomy: information and entertainment. The article describes and conceptualizes the specific characteristics of information, storytelling and attractions; and presents empirical examples of TV journalism communicating within these modes of communication.”

  • ““Edward Roscoe Murrow” – the significance of this name in broadcast journalism cannot be overlooked for those who are remotely interested in the topic. Following the advent of FM radio in 1935, Murrow was assigned by CBS –the largest radio network in the United States at the time – as director of talks. But it wasn’t until his move to London in 1937 to become the network’s chief correspondent for Europe that he became a household name. Having gathered the best group of reporters to work with (famously known as “Murrow’s Boys”) he oversaw the creation of what we know today as foreign news broadcasting.”

They can cover events at the local, national and international levels, and may research their assigned stories prior to interviewing experts in the field.
