Mark W. Hall in Blackboard  his book "Broadcast Jurnalism" (1971) said that the principal difference between print journalism with broadcast journalism is the first devoted to the eye, while the second was made ​​to the ear. Therefore he distinguishes between what is seen or script called "see copy" with a script that was heard "hear copy". He suggested some guidelines for writing radio and television news such as:

1)   Must be in a conversational style or "conversational style"

2)   Must with short sentences and simple or "to the point"

3)   Should avoid inverted sentence structure

4)   Should pursue that subject and predicate located close together.

According Soewardi Idris in journalism books televis i (1978) he said that the language used in the news televis i is as follows:

1)   Simple, is not mixed with foreign words or words that kursng known by the average viewer

2)   sentences hen d aklah short, straight to the target, not convoluted

3)   Avoid sentences overturned or "inverted sentence" examples:

Newspaper   : It does not attempt to be more flooding for the next five years in

Jaya area, as explained by the Head of Flood Project Jakarta Drs. A B C

  Television   : Head of Special Projects of Regional Flood Capital, Doktorandus ABC said, that there will be no longer any danger of flooding in

Jakarta after five years.

4)   Where possible, try the soup a staple yes sentence sunpass  (subject) and the title sentence (predicate) located close together. Separation is too far between the principal and the designation sentences can disrupt the audience's attention.

5)   Foreign currency, dose, dosing scales and other countries may be different than what is commonly used in this country. Mile, Pound, Dollar, Yen, etc. are not uncommon in our society. Should be given also similarities in what is applicable in Indonesia, or at all directly with the equation in terms of Indonesia.
