Tune in this week to watch the debut of our new show, Journalism Now and Then, which aims to provide perspectives on the field of journalism through a historical lens. Klein College Master of Journalism student Paige Murray invites guests to discuss chapters in journalism’s past in order to highlight what reporting the news means now.
This episode takes a look at the legacy of seminal broadcast journalist, Edward R. Murrow. Featuring archival footage, host Paige Murray speaks on Murrow’s impact on the course of broadcast journalism with guest Aaron Quanbeck, broadcast journalist and Professor of Journalism at Minnesota State University. Through this lens, they provide an analysis of the current state of the broadcasting in general. Later, she speaks with Magda Konieczna, author and Professor of Journalism at Klein College, Temple University, about the decline of print media and the solutions provided by nonprofit journalism.
