From the first radio broadcasts in the 1920s to weather and news information provided by residents in 2017, Delmarva has played an important role in the electronic media’s 90-year history in the United States.

Dr. David Burns of Salisbury University’s Communication Arts Department will host a five-week course entitled “Delmarva’s Window to the World: Global Journalism and the Local Media Landscape.”

Topics include “The Birth: Radio and War (the Great Depression to World War II),” “The Freeze: the Electronic Media and War Correspondence (World War II to the 1960s),” “The Expansion: Post-World War II Media (1960-1990s),” “The Consolidation: Deregulation and Its Impact on News and Information (1990-2010)” and “the Personalization: Citizen Journalism and Augmented Reality (2010-Present).”
