Write text to a text area from radio button

I have a text area and a set of 3 radio buttons.

When the user clicks a radio button, I'd like to write some text to the text area based on what they selected. Could someone assist with how to write this JavaScript? Thank you.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
