Radio broadcast journalism has certain principles and techniques which are always to be taken into consideration when writing a script. News writing for radio is based on some rigors meant to assure that the public will receive the information properly. First of all, radio news must be concise, clear, and accurate. The information should be meticulously verified and transmitted only when the radio journalist has a confirmation beyond any doubt. The script must answer to the most important journalistic questions (the so-called Five W’s: who, what, when, where, and why), and it is mandatory to be structured in a manner that helps the presenter draw and maintain the attention of the listeners for as long as possible. The text of the news must be easy to be read and easy to be understood. It is meant to be comprehended only by listening, so the editor should comply with the rules that guarantee an impeccable reception of the message transmitted.
