State of the News Media in 2014: A Look at Media Shifts, New Trends, and What the Future Holds


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, we’ll hear from AMY MITCHELL, director of Journalism Research for the Pew Research Center, on the report. We’ll also speak to DAVID FOLKENFLIK, NPR‘s media correspondent, about what’s happening in the world of media in 2014.
