Student-Assisted Evaluation of Television Stations within a State.
Weinberg, Steve
The performance of local television stations with regard to programming and employment practices is a topic that lends itself well to investigation by journalism educators and their students. This paper examines the purposes of such a study and tells how to define the scope of the study and how to start it. It then offers suggestions for conducting three types of research: studying program listings, such as those in "TV Guide" and in the local newspaper; scrutinizing the public files of local stations; and monitoring the stations under study, from sign-on to sign-off. The paper describes the numerous types of materials that are contained in a television station's public file, and it shows how these materials may be used to gain vital information about the policies and practices of the station.
