45: Media Fringe

45: Media Fringe

Dec 6, 1996
Four stories about people struggling at the fringes of our nation's media/music/infotainment industry.
  • Scott Carrier took a job in commercial radio working for a network correspondent he refers to as "The Friendly Man." Every story was supposed to be upbeat, a tale of people coming together in the heartwarming spirit of community. And every story they sent him on turned out to be a sham. When he tried to tell his editors the story they wanted was untrue, he was told that attitude would get him fired. (17 minutes)Jobs/EmploymentJournalismPoliceRadio
    Song:
    • "Who Listens To Radio?", Sarah Vaughn
