Editor's Remarks:
Toward the Next 20 Years
Phylis Johnson
Welcome to Issue 1 of the 21st volume of the journal of Radio & Audio Media
(]RAM). It is an honor to continue its legacy as the new editor. I give special thanks
to the former editor Joseph R. Blaney and Associate International Editor Per Jauert
for their help and support during the transition period. In this issue, the reader
will find a mixture of contemporary, historical, and regulatory studies, as well as
special features including our regular book review section edited by Andrew Clark.
I would like to welcome aboard my editorial assistant Honna Veerkamp, M.F.A.,
second-year graduate student in the College of Mass Communication and Media
Arts at Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC). Frank Chorba, the founder
of this journal, then under the title of journal of Radio Studies, received his Ph.D.
at SIUC. I look forward to new ideas to ensure that ]RAM's contents remain on the
cutting edge of policy, programming, and technologies by reaching out to various
radio and audio interest groups nationally and globally for refereed submissions
and symposium themes, all the while consistently upholding the tradition of quality
research across quantitative and qualitative methodologies.
This issue came together nicely with a well-rounded exploration and analysis
of topics that call attention to the potential and pitfalls of the radio industry and
its related practices in the larger audio spectrum of recent years. The contemporary
research section begins with an interesting experiment designed by authors Maureen
E. Savage and Patric R. Spence to study the effects of social media on audience in-
teraction and on-air radio host credibility. Kris M. Markman and Caroline E. Sawyer
explore the motivations among independent podcasters who advocate building
communities, seeking audience feedback, and improved technologies as critical
means toward competitive strength. Lu Zheng investigates the use of narrative in
radio advertising for gauging audience impact and attention, specifically examining
persuasiveness of messages through cognition, imagery, and transportability. In this
section, Sara Magee and Howard Fisher take an in-depth look at National Public
Radio's (NPR) use of journalists as sources within their stories, spanning a decade
of data from the well-known news program A// Things Considered. Magee expands
upon her content analysis research from our last issue, with this article specifically
examining what types of stories are more likely dependent on the expertise of the
journalist, and the implications of source credibility in maintaining public trust.
