Development of Plans for a Summer Seminar for Broadcast News and Editorial Directors. Final Report.
An Urban Affairs Seminar for Broadcast News and Editorial Directors is both a feasible idea and a need. Unlike newspapers, television and radio stations have no "resident experts" in the various aspects of urban affairs. A faculty was selected, the seminar was organized, and a prospectus mailed to approximately 500 stations. Unfortunately, the economic conditions of early 1970 militated against the holding of the seminar. Though the requisite minimum number of registrations was not received, many stations approved of the seminar and wished to be apprised of future efforts. Success of this type of seminar seems certain in a more economically secure period. (Author/DM)
