Podcasting Piece Published

Big victory today for a spring semester teaching project on podcasting.

The latest issue of the Broadcast Education Association's correspondence journal, Feedback, has our article containing our preliminary research on podcasting among broadcast stations.

"Pegging the Podcast Potential in the Class and the Newsroom: Lessons Learned from a 2006 Experiment" is a summary of our research both in the industry and in academe.

Bobby Puppione, executive producer of the PROTOTYPE Podcast here at Alabama Public Radio, and I presented the industry research at the AEJMC Midwinter Conference in Bowling Green, OH at Bowling Green State University in February.

Dickie Cox, top guy at the Sanford Media Resource & Design Center, which stored our iPods, also was a co-author on the article.

It's great to see that research in print before the end of this year.

Now, if we can complete the more sophisticated academic research from that experiment. The work continues.
