Television News: A History

This Timeline covers the history of Television News for an online class I teach each year. The Timeline is meant to introduce undergraduates to seminal moments in the history of television news while also presenting them with a variety of news delivery methods, styles, and forms. We start with newsreels the predecessor of television news, go through the early days of b/w tv on small screens through full color and protests and marches, up through real time coverage of wars, battles, and politics. Let me know of a story you would like to see added to the timeline by sending me a link to that material, so we can extend beyond the 120 videos that now fill this teaching tool.
