Managing Decisions for Broadcast News Media

1.png Prepare: While television and radio may seem to have an edge over print news, broadcast media must still address the same issues of all media systems: attracting audiences and building relationships with them to keep them watching and listening. Many of the elements that apply to television are also relevant for radio. Read Chapter 6 in the textbook. Then, explore some of the news television and radio programs in your own community.
2.png Reflect: After you have read the chapter and explored some of the offerings of television news and talk radio news programs, consider the following:

· Do you believe the broadcast outlets in your local area are effectively reaching the audience?

· What aspects do you feel need to be considered from a management standpoint in the broadcast news media outlets in your local area?

3.png Write: After considering the news offerings of your local news media outlets, write a 250-300 word response that addresses each of the questions. In your initial post, you must include at least one in-text citation from the reading material and an additional in-text citation from a scholarly source that you locate in the Ashford University Library or from another credible source. At the end of your post, include your name and a full reference for all sources cited in the body of your post. All citations and references must adhere to APA style guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
