The purpose of this project was to interview eleven Hubert H. Humphrey Fellows at the Walter Cronkite School at Arizona State University through a podcast series titled “The Global Journalist Roundtable”.
During a two month period I interviewed the eleven Fellows and through a keyword analysis of the transcripts of each interview I determined several themes, which according to the Fellows, were important aspects of global media.
Those themes were education, innovation, social media as a disrupter to news verifiability, polarization, censorship, the importance of truthful news, and leadership.
The reason for interviewing the Humphrey Fellows specifically was due to my sheer curiosity, respect, and admiration for them as professionals in the global media industry.
