Hello Former Students,
If you would like to check out TV & Radio’s first ever wholly original web-series titled: Unproductive
Click the link: unproductivewebseries.com
The show premiered on Thursday, October 22nd and new episodes stream every Tuesday & Thursday at 9pm!
This was part of a 4-5 course concentration over the past year written, directed, and edited by TVR students.
Hope you like it!
Best, and hope all of you are well.
P.s. – I know I said I wouldn’t be using this anymore but it is only for big events such as Media Nights or Unproductive.
If you would like to unsubscribe, I understand, and there is a way to do at the bottom of the page. I think.

I NEVER take this long but because Summer Session 1 started a week earlier than usual… everything was backed up.
Add in my 150+ students… fun times.
Either way… The grades are in… and some of you did quite well… others not so much… and in-between.
I am sorry (yet not sorry) but if you have 3+ absences and fail a bunch of items you’re not going to pass this course… let alone any course in college.
If you received high grades across the board — congrats on earning your A. You deserved the grade for sure.
Remember, all I did was look at your 3 exams, your blog grade, attendance, participation notes and poof!! There is your final grade.
I didn’t give you an A, B, C, D or F — you got that all by yourself. I just put it in the computer.
If you think I put your grade in error– which can happen– reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is summer so I may not respond right away but I will respond.
Last but not least: if you would like to unsubscribe to the blog, you have to do it yourself, I cannot do it. If you would like to stay subscribed, don’t do anything… and look at the changes for the fall 2015 semester!
Best and enjoy the summer vacation!

Hello spring 2015 1165,
This is the last post I will be sending and then off for the summer… kinda.
All the blogs have been graded… and it was pretty easy going — HA!! I wish! It took so long and I’m exhausted.
If you would like your blog grade — please email your TA to find out the grade. Give them a few to respond because it is finals week, etc etc.
With the blogs — very simple… you did all the work… you got an A… after that, well, it starts to drop. You start missing things, lateness, under the word count, poor this or poor that, then your grade takes a hit.
As I said in the beginning: you do the work, do it well, it’s an A.
I am opened to discussing your grade but only if there are valid excuses — in the sense of, “I was penalized b/c of lateness yet I didn’t have any late posts.” Well, ok, mistakes happen… but you better PROVE it before just emailing.
If you disagree with your grade because you think you should have gotten higher, before you do, take a look at the blogs below. While these are far from perfect, if you wonder why you didn’t get an A- or higher and they did, take a look. Btw, not ALL A- or higher blogs are on here.
Scroll down for the blog links.
That’s about it.
Enjoy the summer, the final grade will be in probably some time next week.
Was a pleasure except for the exam days when — well you remember.

I have received several emails (ok like 4) with students asking about the exam.
And the last post is accurate and I said the same thing during class.
Good luck studying.

Good luck studying!
Reminder for final exam:
Monday 1:00-3:00pm, same room as always.
Chapters: 10, 11, 14 & 15
100 questions – multiple choice & matching

We MADE it… through winter into spring… and we are here… the final week of Introduction to Mass Media.
I already gave my pep talk and I truly meant it!
For our final week!
Your final blog post is due — it’s the one I am grading. Easiest way to fail this – not doing it :) So… don’t do that. Lateness is a bad idea too.
Get it done! Show me what you’ve learned!
Media Law & Media Ethics chapters.
Monday, May 18th between 1-3pm in our room.
I started creating the exam and it will definitely be 100 questions – Chapters on Internet, PR, Media Law, Media Ethics seem to be the four I am leaning towards.
Still one left… the commencement stuff! Take a look back on the blog and see the details.
Besides that – good luck and enjoy the final week!

Week 13! Final week for any extra credit, except the Commencement one, and this one: Tuesday, May 5th 3:30pm-5:30pm(ish), I need a few students to help me set up for TVR’s end of semester party.
If you can come help set up tables, chairs, decorations, etc etc… email me. I only need a few.
We will have a quiz on the advertising section – so be prepared for that.
We will cover PR and finally the Internet too.
Read The final lecture in Satire’s Brew on Presidential Satire.
Watch the following videos:
Write about the two videos USING Satire’s Brew… and all you’ve learned in 1165. Word Count: 500 words.
The FINAL Blog Assignment:
Your TA should send it out by tomorrow/Wednesday… obviously, work on it… and post by Week 14 before 12pm. If you haven’t heard from your TA by Thursday. Email them and ask for the assignment.
Monday, May 18th 1:00-3:00pm
Same structure as before. Chapters guaranteed to be on there — Internet, Electronic News/Journalism… and… we will see what else.
Best and enjoy the week.
