Talking TV, Politics And Zombies With NPR's Eric Deggans

Oct 25, 2016

A familiar voice on WAMC as NPR’s first full-time TV critic, Eric Deggans looks at issues both important — the coverage of the presidential campaign, for example — and important in a different way — like how the fall lineup is coming together at the TV upfronts. Deggans, the author of the 2012 book Race-Baiter, was previously with the Tampa Bay Times for two decades. He has also written for the New York Times, Salon, CNN, the Washington Post, and many other outlets. He recently delivered a lecture at Siena College called "Breaking Down the Wall: Decoding Media's Confusing Coverage of Race and Culture" and stopped by WAMC first.
