Many people believe that radio is a dying format, but journalists with a background in broadcast arts often prefer this medium over television. It is considered the first form of broadcast journalism, which was pushed aside by the advent and popularity of television. One advantage of radio journalism is that some stories may be pre-recorded for syndication, while a great deal of television journalism is recorded live. National Public Radio is internationally known as a well-respected venue for both serious and offbeat journalism with syndication across the United States, as is the BBC. Radio journalism can be a highly competitive field, and it is imperative to nurture your own individual voice and perspective.
