THE MEDIA BEAT WAS FIRST COMMISSIONED IN 2004 BY TRIBUNE NEWSPAPERS FROM JOURNALIST AND MEDIA CRITIC DAVID TERESHCHUK. IT RAN AS A WEEKLY FEATURE IN TRIBUNE’S NEW YORK CITY DAILY, ‘am new york’ UNTIL TERESHCHUK TOOK THE COLUMN ONLINE IN 2006. THIS WEB VERSION HAS CONTINUED EVER SINCE.
A radio version of THE MEDIA BEAT appears every week on the NPR Connecticut station WHDD – live on Friday morning and rebroadcast over the weekend. THE MEDIA BEAT PODCASTS are available at iTunes and at WHDD’s On Demand page.
