Tune into KGO Radio 810 Monday, February 8, at 10 a.m. as Dr. Richard Craig will be interviewed on the Ronn Owen’s show. Live streaming is available at kgoradio.com.
Dr. Craig, professor for the School of Journalism and Mass Communications, will be live on the radio to discuss his new book, Polls, Expectations and Elections: TV News Making in U.S. Presidential Campaigns, and how it relates to the presidential primaries.
Dr. Craig’s book uses a comprehensive content analysis of transcripts of CBS Evening News broadcasts during presidential election campaigns from 1968-2012. The transcripts are used to demonstrate how television news has gone from simply reporting poll data to portraying it as the only motivation for anything candidates do while campaigning.
The 2015-16 academic year will serve as Dr. Craig’s 16th here at San José State University. He was recently promoted to full professor in August 2015. Visit ProfCraig.com to learn more about him and his work.
