Car Theft Broadcast Writing

In my Broadcast Journalism Writing class, we learned a lot about the specifics of broadcast writing, voice over scripts, how to write for a teleprompter, press releases, news stories, etc. Below is a teleprompter broadcast script with a voice over. This story covers a car getting broken into on the main shopping street, Massachusetts St., in Lawrence, Kansas.

      Garry Duncan was having an early dinner with his friend at La Parilla restaurant.  His car, a green 2007 Mazda 3, was parked on Massachusetts street in a metered handicap parking spot.  When Garry returned to his car, it had been broken into.  The thief stole a package wrapped in a plastic bag on the floor of the car that contained an eight-thousand-dollar prosthetic leg. LX year old Gary Duncan lost his leg in an industrial accident over XXX years ago. He uses a wheelchair to go out and uses the artificial leg to move around his home. Gary had gone to Tonganoxie Limb and Brace Co. before dinner to have his hip-to-floor prosthesis adjusted.  He reported the theft incident to the police the next morning, but the leg has not shown up and the thief has not been found.
