A concise, readable, and informative analysis of the influence of television on the habits and manners of the American television public. Bringing together three schools of thought -- empirical research, theory, and speculative extrapolation -- this work interprets the result of thirty years of research by psychologists, sociologists, political behaviouralists, and mass communication researchers. 'It is an intelligently written and timely text...Broad in scope, yet specific in much of its content, aimed at informing rather than reforming. Television in America can provide a much needed perspective to all educated Americans in assessing the impact of television.' -- Contemporary Education, Vol 55 No 4, 1984

The origins and evolution of the major insititutions in the United States for noncommercial radio and television are explored in this unique volume. Ralph Engelman examines the politics behind the development of National Public Radio, Radio Pacifica and the Public Broadcasting Service. He traces the changing social forces that converged to launch and shape these institutions from the Second World War to the present day. The book challenges several commonly held beliefs - including that the mass media is simply a manipulative tool - and concludes that public broadcasting has an enormous potential as an emancipatory vehicle.

A highly eclectic form of broadcasting in the United States today, by any standard, is low-power television (LPTV). Not an insignificant blip in the industry, there are more LPTV stations licensed than there are full-power television stations. LPTV offers true local and community programming to millions of viewers. Because it fills gaps left by both full-power television and cable, LPTV tends to serve outlying communities, disenfranchised urban groups, and others who have no other way to get their messages out, stay connected, or receive video programs that meet their special interests and needs. In this, the first book devoted entirely to LPTV, the authors tell the complete story of this unique and important medium from its inception to the formidable challenges it faces today and its potential for tomorrow.

This is the first in-depth look at the development of the television newscast, the most popular source of news for over forty-five years. During the 1940s, most journalists ignored or dismissed television, leaving the challenge to a small group of people working above New York City’s Grand Central Terminal. Without the pressures of ratings, sponsors, company oversight, or many viewers, the group refused to recreate newspapers, radio, or newsreels on the new medium. They experimented, argued, tested, and eventually settled on a format to exploit television’s strengths. This book documents that process, challenging common myths – including the importance of a popular anchor, and television’s inability to communicate non-visual stories – and crediting those whose work was critical in the formation of television as a news format, and illustrating the pressures and professional roadblocks facing those who dare question journalistic traditions of any era.
