·nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; balancing drama and information ('heat' vs. 'light')
·nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; generating and evaluating story ideas
·nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; the secrets to crafting good ledes
·nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; creating strong packages for the internet, tv, and radio
·nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; the specific requirements of writing for print and broadcast
·nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; the art of the interview
Along the way, the authors share countless anecdotes from their own storied careers--and discuss larger questions such as the rapidly growing role of digital media and what it means for today's aspiring journalists.
