CK WAS PART OF LIVE CHAT TODAY AT NOON
On Wednesday from 12-1 Central Time I was be part of a live chat on the Lunchbox, a co-production of Chicago Public Radio and Vocalo. You can read the transcript here.
The topic was the media (I've been a media columnist for Illinois Entertainer since... 1992? 1993? 1920?). The questions were supposed to be:
1)Do brand-name columnists need newspapers anymore? And how are our news start-ups doing?
2)Spanish station WOJO is #1 in the radio market (25-54) – What does this say about the future of radio? What is the next trend for Chi radio?
3)TV anchors are moving around like a firesale – what is going on? Will people follow personalities from station to station? [This will be fun, since I don't watch TV news]
The other panelists were my journalism mentor, Robert Feder, plus Andrew Huff of Gapers Block, Larz of Chicagoland Radio and Media, and communications consultant and author Walter Podrazik.
I played the role of token female.
There were no people of color on the panel.....
Which shows just how much the media has changed in the past 100 years.
Maybe that should have been the topic.
(Aw, just be quiet, little girl - and be glad we let you join the party).
It's all maya anyway....
