"Beginning journalists who seek straightforward advice on how to write in the digital age need Practical Journalism: How to Write News - and any college-level holding strong in journalism also will find it a strong reference. It covers the foundations of writing for different mediums, surveys the skills needed to achieve a broad range of talents, and uses interviews with dozens of working journalists to lend insights and tips on the profession. Many college-teachers will also find Practical Journalism and important assignment suitable for study and discussion."
