I haven’t posted a blog post recently, so I thought I would post a short update about what I’ve been doing. West Chester University has awarded me a sabbatical leave to work on a new textbook on broadcast performance. The working title is On Air: Effective Announcing, and is scheduled to be published by Cognella Publishing in 2018.
Because I’m spending most of my time working on this book, I probably won’t be posting to my blog a lot this year. My goal is to have a working draft of this textbook later this year to use in my broadcast performance class.
