We all realize the media landscape is changing very quickly. But where are we headed? And have you ever considered putting yourself on a media diet? We’d originally scheduled Governor Branstad to join us live today. However, late this morning, the Governor’s office let us know that he now has a scheduling conflict. We’ll try to reschedule that conversation for a future date.
Instead today, we’ll listen back to conversation about changes in the media with Executive Director of the Iowa Broadcast News Association Jeff Stein.
Soon after V-E Day, Iowa G-I's were invited to say hi to mom, in a special Mother's Day radio broadcast back home. Sixty-three years later, an emotional Gerald Pepper of Ames hears his voice as a young Army PFC, for the first time. The original WHO Radio recording was found at the Archives of Iowa Broadcasting, at Wartburg College in Waverly. Sounds from May 1945, in Rosenheim, Germany. Note: Pepper passed away in 2011.
Sounds from radio and television broadcasters from decades past, across Iowa. The story is introduced by Jeff Stein, Administrator of the Archives of Iowa Broadcasting at Wartburg College, who provided the various on-air sound-clips embedded in this report.
