The Indiana Report: What 320 Broadcasters Think About Radio and TV Academic Programs in Higher Education.
Wible, Darrell E.
A survey was conducted of 70 Indiana radio and television station managers and 250 college-educated employees of their choosing to assess views on quality of academic programs in radio and television. Questionnaires were distributed and personal visits made to more than 50 stations. Questions and responses were grouped under three headings: Part 1 covers personal data on respondents, including years and range of experience, beginning salary, college majors and minors, age at which management status was attained and a personal choice of "favorite" position. Part 2 deals with opinions and attitudes about college-educated employees, characteristics of radio-TV staff, how employees are recruited and replaced, and recommendations for curriculum content and for improving graduates of academic programs. Part 3 summarizes questionnaire response, including apparent influence on careers of college education, specific broadcasting courses, college placement services, radio-TV departments and professors and college broadcast facilities. Respondents were also asked to rank the emphasis placed on critical areas by their college programs, and to suggest different emphasis based on their experience. (SK)
