    Description"The Radio Handbook" is a comprehensive guide to radio broadcasting in Britain. Featuring two entirely new chapters for this edition, You Radio and Sport on Radio, this text offers a thorough introduction to radio in the 21st century. Using new examples, case studies and illustrations, it examines the various components that make radio, from music selection to news presentation, and from phone-ins to sport programmes. Discussing a variety of new media such as podcasts, digital radio and web-linked radio stations, Carole Fleming explores the place of radio today, the extraordinary growth of commercial radio and the importance of community radio. "The Radio Handbook" shows how communication theory informs everyday broadcasts and encourages a critical approach to radio listening and to radio practice. Addressing issues of regulation, accountability and representation, it offers advice on working in radio and outlines the skills needed for a career in the industry. "The Radio Handbook" includes: interviews with people working at all levels in the industry including programme controllers, news presenters and DJs; examples of programming, including nationwide and local BBC, commercial radio, community and student stations; real typescripts and case studies of current stations; and, a glossary of key terms and technical concepts.
