The Changing Face of
Zoom
Tuesday, May 24, 7:00p.m.
Watching television used to be a fairly simple enterprise—you turned on the set, selected one of 500 channels, and enjoyed your  program. Now, television is changing in front of our eyes. More and more viewers are cancelling cable television, preferring to watch new online-only channels like Netflix or Disney +. An entire  generation of younger viewers has given up on the TV set altogether, and instead watch programs on their laptop or their phones. And tens of thousands of kids and teenagers have started their own TV  networks on YouTube, bypassing NBC, ABC, and CBS altogether. This presentation will  look at these startling developments and explain why the old days of simply “watching  TV” are fast disappearing. 

Presented by Brian Rose, professor emeritus at Fordham University, where he taught for 38 years in the  Department of Communication and Media Studies. He’s written several books on television history and  cultural programming, and conducted more than a hundred Q&A’s with leading directors, actors, and writers  for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the Screen Actors Guild, the British Academy of Film and  Television Arts, and the Directors Guild of America.
