Thu, Nov 09, 2023
Dr. Rosemary Avance, an assistant professor in the School of Media and Strategic Communications at Oklahoma State University, recently performed a groundbreaking study for the Oklahoma Media Center alongside University of Oklahoma professor Dr. Allyson Shortle. Avance and Shortle designed, implemented and executed a qualitative observational study on Oklahoma news deserts, or areas where residents have limited to no access to reliable local journalism. Their extensive research explored whether Oklahomans are receiving local news, which provides information necessary for residents to engage with and make informed decisions about their communities.
