You may have heard of a new product development in bomba pneumática. No matter how simple or strange it is, there has to be a news script prepared for it to capture attention of the intended audience. As a matter of fact, writing one is more difficult than what you initially thought. Basically, even for those who are skilled and experienced in journalism are still struggling to turn a story.

If you’ve been assigned to do this task or if it’s your job to do so, there are actually few ways to create a compelling TV news script.

Tip number 1. Write for the Ear                                       

It is extremely important to read the script out loud. Try to do it in a conversational tone. This way, you’ll be able to judge whether or not your audience would understand it. Compared to newspaper story, your broadcast audience will just have one chance of hearing and understanding your story.

In addition to that, you need to be mindful of the words that sound alike but has different meaning. For example, words similar to “cite”, “site” or “sight” may create confusion among your audience and thus, must be avoided.

You might have noticed when listening to newscast that short sentences are a lot easier to absorb compared to long-winded sentences. When doing this strategy though, make it a point that the sentences sound interesting and lively than being monotone and flat.

Tip number 2. Prevent Passive Voice

Passive voice writing is jumbling the typical sequence of object, verb, subject in active voice writing. This would sound more of a lesson from one of your English classes but it does make a huge difference in terms of broadcast news writing.

Having an active voice will help in distinguishing between subjects and verbs. To give you an example, active sentence will be like “the burglar fired the gun” rather than having a passive sentence similar to “the gun was fired by the burglar”. You will see that in passive sentence, viewers ought to wait until the end of line only for them to know who fired the gun.

Tip number 3. Use Present Tenses

TV news is timely than print news writing that is relevant to a much bigger story, putting information and facts into context. Simply speaking, an evening newscast may sound fresh and at the moment. You have to bring the audience into the piece of news as it unfolds.
