Open Ninth

Conversations Beyond the Courtroom.

A Reporter's Perspective

The role of the media has been constantly changing during the last decade. Whether it’s the 24x7 news cycle or the pervasive use of social media, news consumers want information fast and easily accessible. News organizations are scrambling to adapt to keep up with the demand.


A Reporter’s Perspective,” Kerry Sanders, a Peabody Journalism and Emmy Award winner, provides listeners with a behind-the-scenes look at the changing role of the media. While discussing the media’s transformation over his decades-long career, Kerry shares personal anecdotes and stories of the many assignments he has covered as an NBC correspondent. One thing’s certain – whether embedded with troops in the midst of a war or reporting from the eye of a hurricane, a reporter’s job is unpredictable and ever-changing. And keeping up with the frantic pace of today’s news cycle only complicates their ability to provide factual and relevant news.
