A practical handbook for programming directors, this guide focuses on achieving specific objectives in today's modern, competitive environment. Radio Programming is designed to convey underlying principles and to assist the programmer in accomplishing specific objectives, without mandating exact implementation methods. Instead, it empowers station management and the PD to implement strategies that will work for the particular format and market niche. Radio Programming will be helpful for neophytes in programming, experienced programmers seeking further growth, air talent seeking to develop skills, and general managers trying to understand programming and effectively manage program directors without stifling creativity. It will also help general managers hire effective programmers. Eric Norberg is the editor and publisher of the Adult Contemporary Music Research Letter and a radio consultant. He has worked as a program director at several radio stations, as on-air talent and general manager, and has also operated a radio production company. For fourteen years he has written a weekly column on radio programming for The Gavin Report, a radio trade publication.

Discussing such controversial issues as 'shock jock' Howard Stern, this book treats broadcast indecency as more than a simple regulatory problem in American law. The author's approach cuts across legal, social, and economic concerns taking the view that media law and regulation cannot be seen within a vacuum that ignores cultural realities. This cutting-edge book treats broadcast indecency as a social phenomenon challenging the policy approach of government regulation. It is an exploration of the political and social processes involved in the government control of mass media content. The author, using F.C.C. documents and other sources, studies the complex issue of broadcast indecency and its impact on the mass media and the public. He also challenges assumptions and attempts to place content issues within an international context and to project the future of regulation while offering practical advice to broadcast managers on how to deal with today's broadcast indecency issues. Jeremy Harris Lipschultz, Ph.D., is a former radio news director. He is currently an associate professor of communication and Graduate Program Chair in the Department of Communication, University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Programming TV, Radio, and Cable provides an in-depth look at the roles and responsibilities of television, radio and cable programmers. You will discover how programmers come up with ideas, how those ideas are developed into programming, how the show ideas are pitched to the buyer, how the program schedule is created, how the success or failure of individual shows and the program schedule as a whole is determined and what, if anything, can be done to save shows. Each topic is explored, then applied to three different media: television, radio and cable. Numerous illustrations and real-life examples bring this topic alive and present you with a realistic view of today's programming issues.
