Sample text

By raising issues and spreading knowledge through bulletins, or by confirming certain opinions and perspectives in discussion programmes, radio journalism contributes to the public sphere in several ways. People who phone in or gain other access to broadcasting can participate directly in a wide political debate, albeit one which is mediated and distanced from the actual events it is discussing (Campbell 2004: 190, 193–4). The relationship between those located within this public sphere is, of course, unequal.

Facts are almost invariably multifaceted, often disputable, and with uncertain relationships to a myriad of other facts. A report is always coloured, deliberately or otherwise, by the powers of expression and predisposition of the reporter – and the question of what quintessential fact or truth lies beyond the reports of it is one that journalists happily resign to philosophers. We return here to the point that ‘reality’ is often controversial, as is the way it is represented. For print journalists, differences in style, content and editorial viewpoint are to be exploited in POLITICAL ECONOMY AND SOCIAL DEMOGRAPHY 25 order to enable their newspapers to compete for a profitable share of the market.

There seem to be lots of female News Editors around. Whether they earn the same as the men, I don’t know! There is still a ‘jobs for the boys’ mentality in places, like one man being hired to cover sport just because he played football with the Editor. He had no NCTJ, no legal experience, no radio background, nothing! (Interview with the authors,17 April 2007) However, the sheer numbers of women in many radio newsrooms, where they often predominate, may offset any such disadvantage. To assume that all women journalists operate in a mainly male environment is naïve, for many radio stations are managed by women.
