April 2, 2014
Guests: David Folkenflik and Amy Mitchell
Americans consume their news in a variety of ways, whether via radio, TV, or a multitude of options on the web. A new report on the state of the news media is cautiously optimistic about the future of American journalism: digital outlets are booming, new revenue is entering the market, and social media is changing the face of the news. In this hour of Radio Times, weâ€™ll hear from AMY MITCHELL, director of Journalism Research for the Pew Research Center, on the report. Weâ€™ll also speak to DAVID FOLKENFLIK, NPR‘s media correspondent, about whatâ€™s happening in the world of media in 2014.
