Affordable, No-Nonsense Textbook for College Newswriting Courses Too long, too vapid and too expensive. Like many journalism instructors, R. Thomas Berner was familiar with these complaints, which college students often made about the textbooks assigned in their reporting, writing and copy editing classes. So Berner, a professor emeritus at Pennsylvania State University, decided to write Fundamentals of Journalism: Reporting, Writing and Editing, a student-friendly book with an affordable list price of only $29.95. This 356-page book distills much of the content in other books Berner wrote during his 28 years at Penn State, which included The Process of Writing News, Writing Literary Features, The Literature of Journalism, The Process of Editing, and Language Skills for Journalists.

Convergence is happening around the world. It represents a new form of reporting and may well be the future for journalism. Full convergence involves a radical change in approach and mindset among journalists and their managers. It involves a shared assignment desk where the key people, the multimedia assignment editors, assess each news event on its merits and send the most appropriate people to the story. Convergence coverage should thus be driven by the significance of the news event. Depending on variables unique to each country and company, convergence is one of the most likely scenarios for media organizations around the world. This book explains the phenomenon of media convergence, defines what has been until recently a confusing topic, describes the main business models, provides case studies of successful convergent newsrooms around the world, and explains how to introduce convergence into the newsroom. Stephen Quinn provides a practical introduction to the changing landscape of news reporting, and has written a useful book for students and professionals alike.

"A holistic assessment of what journalism is all about, with plenty of enterprising interpretations of our trade - a word I prefer to 'profession'. I never met a more 'unprofessional' breed than that of my fellow hacks. This book will, I hope, lead our successors both to question and rebel more than we have." - Jon Snow, Channel 4 News "Stands out in a crowded field." The Guardian "The bible of professional education in journalism... Every student of journalism should buy a copy." - THE (Times Higher Education) This is the indispensable guide to the theory and practice of journalism, now updated with 25% entirely new material.

The authors bring widespread international journalism experience to provide a global perspective on how news organizations are evolving, investigating innovative commercial projects in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Norway, South Korea, Singapore and elsewhere.
