Your assignment is to write a 700- to 1,000-word article on an important or pioneering figure in broadcast journalism. It could be someone from any era, from radio or television or both. The only stipulation is that the person you write about should be a significant figure in broadcast news. One of the themes of your article should be to explain why they are important. This is not a research paper. I don't want long, boring passages filled with biographical information that you've cut and pasted from the Internet. I want this to be a magazine style article that is substantive yet entertaining to read. Find out as much as you can about the personality of the person you chosen, and be sure to include plenty of colorful anecdotes about them to bring them to life for your readers. Be sure to also include descriptions of their work in your article. What made them a commanding presence in radio or television journalism?
