Techniques such as lighting, difficult to teach without long setup times, can now be demonstrated without having to shuffle tapes. Students also can use them individually to master concepts following classroom presentations.

The Politics of Broadcast Regulation

Broadcast News Research
The pervasive reliance of broadcast news consultants has given rise to questions about what should be the role of research in radio and television newsrooms. And, has that role changed now that radio and television stations are considering Internet sources, web pages, and new digital hardware and software? From the sound of things, news consultants preside over programs largely fueled by sensationalism, live shots and an absence of international news. What types of research should academics produce that would speak credibly to the industry, and that is not being undertaken at the present time?
