Jennifer E. Moore's research interests include journalism history, visual communication, digital news preservation and participatory news practices. My work on the nineteenth century illustrated press appears in issues of Journalism History, and I have several chapters in media history collections, including Sensationalism: Murder, Mayhem, Mudslinging, Scandals, and Disasters in 19th-Century Reporting and After the War: The Press in a Changing America, 1865–1900. I am passionate about teaching my students about journalism and media history and help them make connections to our current media environment. I currently serve as the treasurer for the Symposium on the 19th Century Press, the Civil War, and Free Expression, held annually at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. My past national service includes serving as a co-organizer of the Joint Journalism and Communication History Conference (JJCHC) that meets annually in New York City. Michael J. Socolow is a media historian whose research centers upon America’s original radio networks in the 1920s and 1930s.

He is the author of Six Minutes in Berlin: Broadcast Spectacle and Rowing Gold at the Nazi Olympics (Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 2016). He was awarded the 2018 Broadcast Historian Award by the Library of American Broadcasting Foundation and the Broadcast Education Association for Six Minutes in Berlin. He is also a former broadcast journalist who has worked as an Assignment Editor for the Cable News Network and as an information manager for the host broadcast organization at the Barcelona, Atlanta, and Sydney Olympic Games. He has written pieces on media regulation and media history for Slate, Columbia Journalism Review, the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Chronicle Review, and other journalistic outlets.
