By Glenn Halbrooks:
When I started in television news, videotape was new, changing a typewriter's ink ribbon was a regular part of the day and cigarette smoke filled the newsroom. Today, anyone can be a part of the media from their own home computer. That makes this the most exciting time to work in the industry. I will help you stay updated on media tools and trends while following the challenges confronting traditional media and the opportunities in the new media landscape.
