Getting the News Electronically

As technologies improved, the speed of news increased. First there was radio, carrying the sound of news simultaneously to thousands of listeners over long distances. Television and the internet added impact. Television added impact with moving images. The Internet put the power of the mass media into the hands of the public.

This gallery traces the evolution through two 25-foot-high media walls featuring memorable images from TV news, a multimedia timeline, trends in digital news and a display devoted to pioneering broadcaster Edward R. Murrow.
