ODU PROFESSOR AND STUDENTS TO APPEAR "ON THE RECORD" JAN. 22

Jeffrey Jones, assistant professor of communication and theatre arts, and several Old Dominion University communication students will appear on the program "On the Record" at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 22.

Hosted by Joel Rubin, the local public affairs talk show airs on WVEC-TV channel 13. Jones and students Keith Phillips, Katherine Ely and Elizabeth Aucamp will discuss a class research project they conducted last semester titled "Critical Analysis of Journalism."

The research project, which monitored the content of local television news broadcasts, was published in a series of five articles in Port Folio Weekly in 2005.

Jones is the author of "Entertaining Politics: New Political Television and Civic Culture, " a book that examines the production, content and audiences of humorous political talk shows on television.
