The course will include coverage of the progressive muckraking reformers who changed journalism in both newspapers and magazines. The last two weeks of the course will examine the impact of radio and television from the 1920s to present day culminating with a trip down memory lane with a discussion of the classic TV shows of the 1950s and 60s that can still be viewed and enjoyed today.
