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. THE WEB VERSION HAS CONTINUED EVER SINCE AT THEMEDIABEAT.US
From 2012 his frequent television reports on ethical issues have been broadcast on the PBS program Religion and Ethics Newsweekly and on the PBS Newshour.
The audio version of THE MEDIA BEAT appears every week exclusively on Robin Hood Radio – first on Friday morning and rebroadcast over the weekend. THE MEDIA BEAT podcasts are available each week, here on the ROBINHOOD RADIO ON DEMAND page.
