Format[edit] As defined by co-host Garfield, On the Media covers "…anything that reaches a large audience—either electronically or otherwise…. Plus, throw into that anything that covers First Amendment issues; anything that has to do with freedom of speech, privacy, is also in our portfolio."[3] The show explores how the media are changing, and their effects on America and the world. Many stories are centered on events of the previous week and how they were covered in the news. These often consist of interviews with reporters about the dilemmas they face in covering controversial issues. Stories regularly cover such subjects as the use of video news releases, net neutrality, digital broadcast flags, media consolidation, censorship, freedom of the press, the influence of 24-hour cable news television coverage, media oppression, and how the media are changing with technology. The show also addresses questions about how the media is influenced or spun by politicians, corporations, and interest groups with the intent to shape public opinion. This includes an OTM feature that covers the media's use of terminologies that may engender biased points of view, and the use of hot-button issues and code words such as Michael Moore, torture, evangelical, and islamofascist.[4] The show also runs a series titled Breaking News Consumer's Handbook, which offers lists of advice on how to properly report or react to different types of recent events in the news[5].

History[edit] On the Media began in 1995 on WNYC as a local call-in show, hosted by Alex S. Jones. In 1997 the show went national in a magazine-style format, hosted by WNYC host Brian Lehrer. During this period, this show was hampered by Lehrer being stretched thin due to commitments from his own daily show, inexperienced producers, and the lack of an editor. In late 2000, Gladstone was brought in by WNYC's director of programming to rethink and relaunch the show.[6][7] The newly formatted OTM debuted in January 2001, co-hosted by Gladstone and Bob Garfield. More than 400 public radio stations currently broadcast the show weekly.[7][8] Formerly distributed nationally by NPR, WNYC began distributing the show in 2015.[9]

Awards[edit] On the Media won a 2004 Peabody Award for excellence.[10] The judges wrote that "On the Media reminds us that the messenger is always part of the message and must be examined as such."[11] In addition, the show has won Edward R. Murrow Awards for feature reporting and investigative reporting,[citation needed] the National Press Club's Arthur Rowse Award for Press Criticism,[12] and the Bart Richards Award for Media Criticism in both 2012[13] and 2013.[14] In 2016, On the Media was awarded the Silver Gavel for its episode "Bench Press".[15] In 2017, producer Meara Sharma was awarded a Gracie Award for her production of the episode "Kidnapped", a special hour on how people around the world get news from Syria.
