A Survey of Broadcast Journalism Education.
Dary, David A.
A survey of the membership of the radio-television division of the Association for Education in Journalism revealed professional and academic backgrounds, broadcast industry affiliations, and attitudes toward broadcast education and the news media. Of those responding to questionnaires, almost all were teachers in higher education who had had about seven years of broadcast news work experience during their careers. The "typical" respondent was male, 37 years of age, a full-time teacher with earlier broadcast work experience, and one who believes that television news, especially CBS evening news with Walter Cronkite, is doing a "good job" as compared to radio. This "composite" respondent considers his teaching role as primary in importance and research or service to the profession as secondary. He also is able, for the most part, to use actual broadcast facilities within the content of his academic courses. (CH)
