In the world of entertainment, one of the biggest stars from the 1980s has utilized his talents in educational television. Rob Lowe, well-known today for his various TV, film, and commercial roles, is the host of a public television series called "Informed," which focuses on important issues facing modern society today. One of the most recent episodes examines schools of journalism in-depth.
For those outside of the field, they may be surprised to hear that the journalism industry has changed significantly in recent years. Because of the advent of the internet, smart devices, and 24-hour news, the journalism world has seen a significant amount of change. Now more than ever, journalism companies have to entertain as well as educate in order to fight for ratings. People used to trust well-known and well-respected journalists such as Walter Cronkite to get their news. Now, people can see the news that they want to see with the click of a button. It's almost as if people are able to select the news they want to read or hear instead of listening to what the educated hosts and journalists have to say. This has forced news companies and journalists to fight for ratings and business, a paradigm shift in the field. The program will disseminate this and speak with professionals who are speaking on how training in the field has shifted.
"Informed" with Rob Lowe is a public television series that is carefully reviewed for quality assurance prior to dissemination to national partners for wider broadcast. It has received numerous awards and accolades for its programming.
