Television: Form, Format and Being Formulaic

  • Phillip McIntyre


It was mentioned in the last chapter that there are some consistent sets of practices media professionals use and perpetuate when they produce content for their particular media form. These practices are absorbed as knowledge and reiterated as skill sets used to understand and reproduce the structures of journalism. The same can be said for the forms of television and the format of the station. This knowledge aids in the development of content that will connect with an audience. In doing so media practitioners often follow what has been termed ‘media logic’ (McQuail 1994, p. 265).
