A Companion to the Australian Media

Edited by Bridget Griffen-Foley

At this time of rapid and revolutionary change in modes of communication, A Companion to the Australian Media provides the first comprehensive, up-to-date historical account of Australia's press, broadcasting and new media sectors.

Arranged in an accessible A-Z format are nearly 500 articles focussing on both the history and contemporary practice of media corporations, individuals, industries, audiences, policy and regulation since the launch of Australia's first newspaper in 1803.

A Companion to the Australian Media is essential reading, as well as a ready reference, for everyone interested in the dynamic world of the media, including practitioners, entrepreneurs, investors, lawyers, commentators, bloggers, historians and students.

Under the editorship of Australia's leading media historian, Professor Bridget Griffen-Foley, and guided by a distinguished Editorial Advisory Board, 300 media scholars, journalists and other media players have written entries in their areas of specialty.

Articles include coverage of geographical regions, reporting and reviewing genres, key individuals dynasties as well as flagship newspapers and broadcasting icons.
