When the first edition of Stay Tuned was published nearly a quarter of a century ago, the broadcasting industry was relatively simple and placid. The second edition-published a dozen years later--reflects the technological, organizational, economic, and legal developments that started to change the Industry. To bring this account of broadcasting history up to 2001, this new edition includes: *A new chapter describing historical developments from 1988 until the present *A substantially expanded bibliography *Selected Further Readings for each chapter in an alphabetical format *Updated and reorganized historical tables, and *Several new historical tables on topics from public television programming to the relationship of television to presidential elections. With these changes, this enhanced edition provides a thorough review of broadcasting history in the United States, from radio through to cable and the internet.
