A radio announcer develops his space based on these guidelines already provided in the script, such as the topics to be touched, comments and the times that it should take for each of these points, in this type of script there is also what is called a curtain at the beginning and at the end.
As it is a means of communication , the announcer must have advanced reading comprehension, good diction and fluent speech , this is how radio programs are carried out.
Previously there is a whole planning work , it is necessary to take into account that the level of detail that the script has is always very deep.
In some cases it may take less time to develop these scripts, such as in the case of those radio programs that are based more than anything on the improvisation of the announcers and the people who participate, for example making calls, in this case the schemes are more open and general.
Depending on the information , radial dashes can be classified into the following types:
- Literary script
- Technical script
- Technical-literary script
According to the possibility of making changes are:
- Open script
- Closed script
According to the form :
