Here’s Your Ticket To The Reporter’s Studio

Welcome to the Reporter’s Studio. I hear you. What is the reporter’s studio?

Let me answer that with a couple of questions. What do you know about the news media? Is your answer, my local newspaper, my local NPR station, my favorite television network news? Maybe you think the news media is fake. But, seriously. Do you know a journalist? Do you know what they do day in and day out to bring you the news? Better yet, have you ever wondered what life would be like if there was no news? How would you know what politicians are doing? How would you know what the economic markets are doing? How would you know if there was a dangerous person whom police are seeking now in your neighborhood?

All of those questions are the reason for this website and podcast. We’re here to help you understand what a journalist is and isn’t. We’ll tell you about how the news is made. And we’ll tackle those questions about fake news. And no, this is not just for people in the business. This is for anyone who consumes the news.

Every week we’ll talk to a journalist about their day to day, and about their thoughts on the way people view the news media. By the way, you’ll hear me say news media industry and not just the word media because we need to be accurate.

If we define media, well this is the best way to look at it.

The term media, which is the plural of medium, refers to the communication channels through which we disseminate news, music, movies, education, promotional messages and other data. It includes physical and online newspapers and magazines, television, radio, billboards, telephone, the Internet, fax and billboards.

It describes the various ways through which we communicate in society. Because it refers to all means of communication, everything ranging from a telephone call to the evening news on television can be called media.

Market Business News

That’s not the same as what we’ll be discussing. We’re talking about news.

The news media are those elements of the mass media that focus on delivering news to the general public or a target public.

Science Daily

So now you know why I do that.

I want to hear from you. What questions do you have about the news and the people who create it every day? Post your thoughts on the LinkedIn page or the Youtube page.

When it’s all said and done, I hope this podcast helps us answer your questions about what the news media is supposed to be, and who journalists are supposed to represent.

I'm blessed. Most of my professional career, almost 20 years, I've spent as a journalist. Some of it was in print, a little in television, but most of it in radio. I've worked with some wonderfully talented producers and directors in those two decades. It would take pages to elaborate on all of the experiences I've had as a reporter, producer and host. Needless to say they include opportunities talking with leaders of state, religious leaders, civic leaders, writers, artists and entertainers. The last couple decades have been a lot of fun. But, the next couple decades will be far better.
