Blog post #3

While building the final portfolio project I came across some realizations about our media landscape and was able to find ways to provide concrete evidence.

Reading response #5 People panos

In taking the people pano pictures this week I noticed that as I move off campus to take the photos, people respond differently to me taking photos than people on campus.

In last week’s reading about the transition from terrestrial radio to other forms of audio consumption, Albarran, and others, explore why a new generation of listeners tend not to tune into an AM or FM station. More frequently the population of 18-25-year-olds, the subjects for this study, are turning to other forms of listening media: […]
