WWII Radio Shaped News Coverage

Feb 6, 2014


Today, thanks to the internet, smart phones, satellite communications and 24-hour cable television we have all come to expect almost instant access to news stories, from virtually anywhere in the world. Dr. Michael Turney, former chair of the Northern Kentucky University Communications Department, joins us to discuss radio coverage of WWII, and how it shaped today’s as-it-happens news model. Dr. Turney recently spoke on the topic as part of the Six@Six lecture series sponsored by the NKU Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement.
