Live from Africa: A handbook for African radio journalists

The Institute for War and Peace Reporting produced this extensive guide to radio journalism. Their handbook includes a discussion of the role of journalism, as well as practical information on preparing and airing news stories, from story sourcing to voicing and presentation. Chapters cover topics such as on-location recording and computer-based audio editing. The guide also provides guidance on safety, security and sensitive reporting in conflict areas, as well as libel issues. Each chapter provides exercises, discussion sections, and references for further reading.

The full handbook is available online at: http://www.iwpr.net/pdf/LiveFromAfrica.pdf.
