The 6th Annual Shorty Awards | April 6, 2014
This feed keeps TV Studies students (and anyone else interested in TV) informed about the latest news, reviews, & views about television. Run by @crsbecker.
The Twitter feed for the News For TV Majors blog is run by Christine Becker, a TV Studies professor at the University of Notre Dame. Becker started the blog in 2009 while teaching a class on TV storytelling. She found that she was constantly emailing students links to interesting articles about TV and figured it would be more efficient (and less intrusive) to start a blog and Twitter feed to take over the task of informing interested students about the latest TV news that she deemed of relevance to those studying TV. This would also allow others beyond her students to benefit, and the audience of the feed does indeed now expand far beyond just TV majors, as TV critics, journalists, bloggers, and fans also follow, in addition to TV Studies students and scholars from around the globe. Out of respect for the integrity of this audience, News for TV Majors has no advertising. The website and Twitter feed are curated by Becker to serve TV fans and to honor TV's greatness, not to make money.
