Today, the media is more fragmented, biased, and less reliable than ever before. The harsh reality is that our world has been permanently altered because of the proliferation of information for so many sources. Twitter, Buzzfeed, Info Wars, Reddit, Snapchat, Facebook, YouTube and a short attention span has changed the way we consume our ‘news of the day.’ It wasn’t until 2016 that the term ‘fake news’ even existed. Now a day rarely goes by that someone isn’t using the term.
Guy Rathbun is a veteran in the business and an active participant in ‘guerrilla media’ and podcasts. While anyone with a smartphone can post a tweet or start a podcast, with this new sense of freedom comes a new level of responsibility.
Guy will touch on technology and techniques you can adopt when you are ready to add your own voice to the mix. This will be a TechBrew you won’t want to miss.
Our invited guest Guy Rathbun began his career in broadcasting as a field reporter for a commercial radio station in 1975 and was appointed to News Director four years later. During that time he volunteered at a local public radio station, and in 1982 I was hired at KCBX as a part-time announcer. The offer of a full-time Music Director came in 1985. Then in 1986, Guy was promoted to Program Manager, a position he held until October 2011. He also has a passion for radio drama (even though it attracts 1% of the radio audience) and has produced 50+ full-length dramas including 22 Shakespeare plays.
