Reporting: An Introduction
James Glen Stovall
The heart of journalism is reporting.
Each of the sections is short and written with the student audience in mind. Most chapters contain review questions, photos and links to other multimedia features.
This book is conceptual, rather than being a workbook or exercise text. It is designed to get students thinking and talking about the important job of reporting.
