The Irish language media - all you need to know about TG4, Raidió na Gaeltachta and other print and broadcast media in the language. The role of the news journalist, the organisational relationships, and the regulatory framework in which they function are examined here, interspersed with pithy comments from experienced practitioners. The first comprehensive guide to this vibrant sector, and of particular relevance to students and journalists in their early career.
A new updated edition of this bestselling work first published in 2006. Media studies students in particular find this a useful work. The comprehensive discussion on new media in this edition will be welcomed and the new chapter on the methods and skills used in editing in the media industry.
