    DescriptionThe Radio Handbook is a comprehensive guide to radio broadcasting in Britain. Completely rewritten and updated for the second edition, 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 sports programmes. Fleming explores the extraordinary growth of commercial radio, analyzes the birth of digital audio broadcasting and internet radio and evaluates their effects on the industry. 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 *Chapters on radio style, the role of news, getting started in radio and the tools of broadcasting *A glossary of key terms and technical concepts
