Episode 28: How College Students Get the News

Last year on this podcast, we told you about a large study of the news consumption habits of college students that had just gotten underway. Now the results of that study are in and on today’s What’s New you will discover the many often surprising channels, formats, and apps that inform today’s youth and shape their perspectives. On this episode, we welcome back John Wihbey, assistant professor of journalism and media innovation, and the author of the forthcoming book The Social Fact: News and Knowledge in a Networked World. John is with me in the studio in Northeastern University’s Snell Library, and joining us remotely from California is Alison Head, the Founder and Director ​of Project Information Literacy.
