How the Internet Changed the Media and Why Newspapers, Music, and Television Will Never Be the Same
Tuesday, November 9, @ 7:00 pm via Zoom
Presenter: Brian Rose, Professor Emeritus, Fordham University


Will there be a printed newspaper in any city ten years from now? Will newsstands and bookstores disappear as fast as record stores? Will prime-time television vanish?
This illustrated lecture will explore these questions and examine the many ways the internet has radically transformed the “old” media of newspapers, magazines, the recording industry, film, radio, and television. It will trace how this digital revolution took place in such a short period of time, and what lies ahead in the continually changing era of “new” media.
