What are the business implications behind mergers of communicaitons giants?  How has coverage of sexual harassment scandals of media figures and the #MeToo movement impacted victims who consider coming forward?  And what about White House coverage in an age of sometimes-illusive truth?  David Folkenflik gets to ask - and answer - those questions as Media Correspondent for NPR.  

His work is heard on WAER, during Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Here & Now.  Listeners can also hear Folkenflik on his latest assingment, as host of On Point.  He visits Syracuse University for an event Monday, Oct. 15th, hosted by WAER and the Newhouse School of Communications (info below).

Folkenflik is also author of the book Murdoch's World: The Last of the Old Media Empires, as well as articles in The Washington Post, Newsweek, and other publications.  

For those interested in attending Folkenflik's lecture and discussion Monday Night, contact WAER Development Director Mary Evans: 315-443-5253 or
