First Broadcast News Job After College at a TV Station in a Low Market Term Paper

… ¶ … Broadcast News Job

In today's world, media, through the broadcasters and/or journalists has been playing a detrimental part to the people's lives. Becoming a journalists and/or a broadcaster entails a lot of efforts already, and it presents a big impact to the majority of readers or viewers or listeners.

First, there are series of responsibilities that all broadcasts journalists should adhere to. Journalists and broadcasters must learn to accept that their role requires being humble and publicly, that what they do is far more subjective and far less detached than the aura of objectivity implies -- and the public wants to believe. If the broadcasters and journalists stop claiming to be mere objective observers, it will not end the charges of bias but…. [read more]

Digital Television and the Law Term Paper

… Digital Television and the Law

An Introduction to Digital Television and a comparison of Digital Television and Analogous Television:

What is Digital Television? As compared to Analogous Television that receives one electronic signal that is continuous in nature, the Digital Television uses the concept of a 'binary code' that means that the signal that it receives is composed of a series of ones and zeroes, in much the same way as that of a Computer. The encoding of zeroes and ones means that the signal that it receives is not a continuous process when compared to that of the analogous Television, but very similar to that of a computer, which receives coded signals in the form of zeroes and ones.

Students Come and Go Term Paper

… I also took advantage of other valuable resources in the College of Communication as an on-air reporter for WVUA for more than eight months. In addition, I worked as an assistant producer for the Center for Public Television. I've spent so many hours at Reese Phifer it seems like my second home. I have learned that versatility is also an essential aspect of a career in this field. I was a radio anchor/reporter by day, a TV reporter by night, and I managed to fit in 20 hours a week working for CPT. To me, the ability to have a first-class education and relevant work experience are the keys to success, along with the personality traits associated with anybody who deals with the public.

Career in Broadcast Journalism - News Anchor

Description of the Career:

news anchor is one type of several news presenters. News presenters, generally, present information on news shows broadcast via television, the radio, or the Internet.

A news anchor is specifically an individual who presents material over the television, radio and increasingly the Internet. This material is typically prepared for the news anchor; however, at times, the news anchor may be forced to improvise their commentary, especially during live presentations of the news. In addition, many news anchors go beyond simply reading prepare material on air, but…. [read more]

Ethnic/Race in the News Media Term Paper

… But all agree that there is room for improvement." (Rifkin) This is undoubtedly the case. The way in which ethnic and racial issues are covered by the media is skewed. The news media, as well as the entertainment aspects of the media, have an agenda to get ratings. This means that morality and social justice are often curbed in order to bring in the most money. "News gathering, to be sure, is a highly imperfect art, and problems with basic facts, not to mention nuances, are common. But when you are talking about conflicts that are at their root racial, ethnic or religious, the stakes are higher. This is the stuff riots, wars and deep-seated prejudices are made of, and the news media has an…. [read more]

Political News Coverage of Presidential Campaigns Term Paper

… Presidential Election & TV

The availability of televisions in the late 1940's led to the belief that a new period was arising in public communication. Columbia Broadcasting System President Frank Stanton said,

Television, with its penetration, its wide geographic distribution and impact, provides a new, direct and sensitive link between Washington and the people. The people have once more become the nation, as they have not been since the days when we were small enough each to know his elected representative. As we grew, we lost this feeling of direct contact-television has now restored it. (Campbell)

One of the expectations for TV, then, was in its capacity to inform and motivate the American electorate. Large segments of the public had immediate contact with political events.…. [read more]

Children, Television and American Values Term Paper

… The messages being sent ot he target observation age on this show might clash with what America believes it is teaching its children. There are several underlying racist situations as well as many self-esteem issues with their son. Often times in this show the message of the episode is that the son is an outcast who cannot seem to find his way. He does not fish or hunt well enough to please his father, he does not look good enough to attract females, he is not smart enough to do well in school. If this were presented in a different light than it would be a positive role because the message would be that average is fine. However, this show sends the message to the…. [read more]

Cult TV Series (E.G. True Essay

… Smallville's triumph for television was that it was able to depict this traditional conflict in a manner that was innovative, hip, relevant and socially accessible to the minions (and millions) of people who tuned in each week to see the show.

This proclivity to add a substantial element of humanity (with all of its limitations and inherent contradictions) was not limited to just Kent, however. For instance, the character of Lex Luther, who has traditionally been portrayed as the quintessential villain in all its ruthless and heartless appeal, was imbued with an unmistakable sense of loneliness that powered his character, driving him to befriend the set of teenagers who made up the principle cast of Smallville, and which inevitably led him down his dark path….

… Business -- Political Science

The evolution of American Politics over Time due to Technology

It's not overly obvious at first glance, especially since politics sometimes lags in modernization when compared to the private segment, but politics takes advantage of every technological advance there is, now and will continue to do so in the future. Back in the day, Alexander Hamilton, among others used the printing press in order issue the Federalist Papers almost anonymously (Teal, n.d.). That was a just the beginning of a road that has progressed from candidates literally yelling at the whole group in order to get them to take action, to the present day world of Twitter.

Over the years, radio and television have changed politics in many ways. "Before FDR's…. [read more]

Blade Runner: A Marriage Essay

… Because replicants were not human, albeit they were perfect human substitutes, it was considered acceptable in this society to enslave them because it was believed that replicants were not capable of feeling emotions.

This segregation between man and machine ultimately leads to a schism within society with the conflict subsequently leading to rebellion. One of the main reasons that the replicants rebel against humans is because they have been oppressed; not only are they slaves, but they are also not allowed to cohabitate with humans on Earth with their mere presence on the planet being considered illegal. However, had the replicants not rebelled, there would have been no need to organize blade runner units to quell the rebellion. Oddly enough, the line between man and…. [read more]

What Is Media Television Teaching Us About Each Other? Term Paper

… ¶ … watching television shapes our views about each other. The writer explores two television shows to determine what message is being sent and what the television shows tell the viewers about each other. There were two sources used to complete this paper.

When it comes to where Americans get their views and opinions of each other, television will get named as the source more than any other medium. Television is a pervasive and constant in the lives of most Americans. Whether it is tuning into one's favorite show or watching a new show for the first time, one shapes views of other people based on what they see on the screen. It is interesting to note that television does often mimic real life but…. [read more]

Race in Early Television Programming Term Paper

… The stylistic differences between Beulah's shots on the one hand, and the more elaborately staged white family scenes into which they are cut on the other, created an acute sense of textual disintegration (Caldwell 48).

There was enough controversy surrounding the show to keep it on the air for three years, but when it went off the air, another female black woman would not lead a prime-time television show until 1968, when Dianne Carroll starred in "Julia."

At first glance, "Julia" seems far different from "Beulah." Julia was a professional woman (a nurse), raising a son alone. However, if Beulah was too black, then Julia tipped the scales in the other direction. To fit in prime-time television with a still largely white audience, Julia became…. [read more]

Gossip vs. News Essay

… Ethical questions also surfaced regarding whether Woods could and should be presented as an appropriate role model for young athletes given his dishonest, unfaithful behavior (Rich, 2009). In contrast to the early months of the scandal in late 2009, the majority of events and analysis that took place during 2010 was newsworthy based on its credibility and relevancy.

Tiger Woods is only one example of the endless incidents that begin as celebrity gossip and eventually transform into entertainment news. For example, the press is currently full of commentary and reports about Charlie Sheen, his criminal behavior, and his inability to produce work on his hit television series (Carter & Stetler, 2011). When celebrities face personal scandal or hardship it typically has little bearing on the…. [read more]

American Universities and Corporatization Research Paper

… University Sports Scandals Aren't a New Phenomenon

College sports programs actually began to become troublesome a hundred and fourteen years ago, when, at the turn of the century, scandals and an over-abundance of student frenzied behaviors caused administrators to establish oversight committees to regulate football (Kissinger, et al., 2009). Moreover, by the 1920s, some historically black college and universities' football programs (some dating to 1892) were called into question because of the fact that educational goals -- and eligibility requirements -- for black athletes were put on the back shelf in favor of sports success stories (Kissinger, 2009).

Kissinger references a 1930 study by Savage that showed that once student-athletes graduated, there was nowhere for those individuals to work based on what they had learned…. [read more]

Television on Society Term Paper

… The movie showed several eroticized shots of the semi-naked Cree warrior sleeping or dancing around a campfire (Bird). This objectification presents the Indian man in a way that a White man could not be depicted on television.

The other stereotypical role of Indian men is that of the benevolent wise elder. Programs such as Walker, Texas Ranger and Touched by an Angel have regular wise Indian elder characters who wield tremendous power through communing with spirits. These characters are brought out to help or advice the lead characters. Unlike the young, scantily clad counterparts, elder Indian males wore robes and are usually desexualized. Their characters are often undeveloped, with no trace of family or identity (Bird).

Both the noble savage and the wise elder stereotype…. [read more]

Radio Corporation of America Company Essay

… The progress of the organization through various times also remarked the developments in television broadcasting and manufacturing. It is one of the second major developments of the corporation. The impact of the television broadcasts has a multidimensional impact on cultures and society. The television broadcast created a visual activity for middle classed population of America for leisure and entertainment.

The National Broadcasting Network (NBC) came into being for radio. However it was also used to broadcast television programs for international audience. It is noted that before the commercial wide spread of internet, television was a means for electronic transmission for news, current events, sports, and entertainment. The impacts of television were also profound in shaping public opinions as well as providing information. The major presidential…. [read more]

HDTV Challenges in Marketing Term Paper

… ¶ … Marketing HDTV

HDTV was introduced into the U.S. market many years ago, though broadcasters and viewers alike have been slow to adopt the new technology. Within the European and UK market, a mass marketing campaign has generated much interest and impetus to adopt HDTV in the last couple of years, though industry experts expect full adoption and implementation of HDTV to be slow in coming.

Unlike the introduction of color television which far exceeded black and white sets in capacity, many consumers fail to find adequate reason to justify the high cost of expenditure associated with HDTV.

Likewise broadcasters have been reluctant to adopt the technology for fear that revenues will not catch up to the expense necessary to implement HDTV within a…. [read more]

Radio Broadcasting What Are the Requirements Research Paper

… ¶ … Radio Broadcasting

What are the requirements for breaking into broadcasting on the radio side? Is a college degree necessary? What kind of training do radio stations expect an applicant to have? Is it important for the applicant to have a certain kind of voice? Is radio still a relevant and viable medium even though new technologies have brought listeners many musical choices that are outside of radio transmissions? These questions and others will be answered in this paper.

What about radio in 2010? Background

The listening environment has changed dramatically over the last two decades, according to author Michael C. Keith. Radio used to be AM and FM, and that was it. There were portable radios (boom boxes) and car radios, and that…. [read more]

Future of Radio Research Paper

… Future of Radio

What is the future of radio? Does radio have a positive future with a wide-open list of possibilities, or are there stumbling blocks in front of radio's future? What are the technologies and other competing sources? What will it take for radio stations to convert to digital technologies, and why have they not done that to date? These and other issues will be discussed in this paper.

Current State of Radio Broadcasting

According to a report called "The State of the News Media" by the Pew Research Center, traditional AM and FM radio "still dominate the audio landscape" but there are "growing signals that raise questions about its future" (Olmstead, et al., 2011, p. 1). Olmstead reports that "large majorities of Americans…. [read more]

Guild of America (Wga) Strike Term Paper

… ¶ … Guild of America (WGA) Strike

As of Monday November 1, 2007 the Writers' Guild of America (WGA) is officially on strike, having been unable to come to a contract renewal agreement with the Alliance of Motion Pictures and Television Producers (AMPTP). Strike avoidance mediation has failed to fully resolve the major issues that the Guild has, mostly with regard to payment of writers. The effects of this strike are yet to be seen, but if the 1988 22-week strike of the same guild gives us any indication it could be a long and expensive phenomenon. Many laypeople are intensely interested in how the current Writer's Guild of America strike will affect the television shows they watch and enjoy every week. To the average…. [read more]

Power of Media Essay

… This is extremely important because this issue is sort of slow poisoning the society in a very sugar coated way. No human being is entitled to be better than the other one on the basis of the skin color. The true values of human lives need to be restored in the society, rather than the superficial things such as skin color.

Media and Negative Effects on Young Girls

Girls have always been more conscious about their appearance, the way they look, their figure, and particularly when it comes to young adults and teenage girls. As compared to their male counterparts, the constant objective of their life is to look good, and look good always. They are not to be blamed, since they are the epitome…. [read more]

Movie Industry in Downloading Movies Term Paper

… It is also clear that this technology creates challenges that the movie industry must face. The first challenge involves broadband and the movie industry's effort to adapt programs that were compatible with the broadband technology.

We have also discovered that piracy is a major issue that must be reduced immediately if the movie industry wants to avoid problems similar to Napster's. Some within the industry have taken drastic steps to ensure that copyright laws are protected. We found that the industry suffers financially when people choose to pirate movies instead of purchasing them.

The Motion Picture Association of America has pleaded with congress to pass a bill that deals with the issue of piracy and wants immediate action against file sharing websites. In addition, Internet…. [read more]

Simple Life Term Paper

… Acting and Entertainment in "The Simple Life": the 'reality' behind reality television shows

The appeal of reality television shows began with the hit series "Survivor" in 2000, a program that features urban-living Americans trying to "outwit, outplay, and outlast" the other contestants in living life and 'surviving' in an island. Following its success in primetime television, a host of other reality shows were produced, which includes, among others, "Fear Factor" and "The Apprentice," dating games like the "Blind Date" and "Fifth Wheel," as well as real life glimpses in the lives of personalities like the "Newlyweds," "The Osbournes," and most recently, the hit show featuring rich heiresses Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton, "The Simple Life." Reality shows have changed the way programs are produced and…. [read more]

Sexyuality Sexuality the 1950 Essay

… These pageants were not new, but they took on an entirely new dimension in the 1950's. With the advent of television, the pageants could be broadcast to living rooms across America. Rather than having pictures of the pageant show up in the local paper two weeks after the event, the girls were tight there in front of the viewer. For the pageants, judges were given score cards that resembled cattle judging cards which told them how to judge the young women before them (Sharp, 2009). Although the pageants were billed as wholesome, and still are, they again showed a version of women that was more sexualized while at the same time quiet and willing.

The beauty pageant girl was sexualized by the media that produced…. [read more]

Managers Do? Discovering the Answer Term Paper

… Garth also gave it a three for both time and importance, indicating that he did have to transmit policy letters to his subordinates every now and then and that printing up production reports was an important part of his job. Janice offered as an example that while she does have to print up briefs every now and then she rarely has to perform the tasks listed. Similarly, Garth and Lance both indicated that transmitting information was a minor consideration for their specific jobs.

The sixth item reads, "Transmits information to persons outside of organizational area of responsibility," and refers to the role of spokesperson. Results for this role were similar to the role of disseminator. Only Garth indicated that being a spokesperson was a central…. [read more]

Media Worlds Term Paper

… Media Coverage of the 2012 Presidential Election

The diverse and sometimes ugly stories, attacks and sundry reports that have been published in print and broadcast in the media (including electronic media) thus far in the 2012 U.S. Presidential Election campaign reflect just how divided the nation is. These stories and ads in fact say as much about the sorry moral state of America -- and about how out-of-control the issue of politically motivated money is -- as they do about the campaign or the candidates. It is the opinion of this writer that there has rarely been a time in recent American history when conservatives and progressives have been so bitterly divided, and have attacked one another with such meanness and fierce antipathy -- in….

Public Opinion How Is Public Opinion Formed Term Paper

… Public Opinion

How is public opinion formed and what are some of the influences that go into public opinion? According to a scholarly sociological study in the journal Political Behavior, there are four central concepts related to the forming of public opinion. The first is heuristics: they are "common judgmental shortcuts that people use to draw complicated inferences" and hence, make decisions; typically, those shortcuts are endorsements, affiliation with a certain party, polls, and the demographics the candidate reflects (Druckman, et al., 2009, p. 491). The second concept is media priming: a person is environmentally active, and by seeing the president on television promoting environmental causes primes that person to vote for the president; in other words, the media presents candidates' positions and voters form….
