Know Your Media with Neelam Sharma


Host Dr. Zac Gershberg meets with his colleague, Dr. Neelam Sharma, to discuss developments on democracy in the U.S. as well as the world's largest democracy, India.

Dr. Neelam Sharma is an Assistant professor of media studies and journalism in the Department of Communication, Media & Persuasion at ISU, and is interested in researching media effects, and new media and journalism. Prior to starting her academic career, Dr. Sharma worked as a senior journalist in India.

Logan Ramsey was born and raised in Pocatello, Idaho, and is now a senior studying journalism at Idaho State University. He's currently working as Digital Content Director for KISU and News Editor for The Bengal. His aspirations to be a reporter began his senior year of high school when he began to compete in International Extemporaneous Speaking in the National Speech and Debate Association. Halfway through his freshman year of college, he began to write freelance articles for the Idaho State Journal, and a couple of months later he was hired as a part-time reporter. Not long after, he began work as the Associate Editor of ISU's student newspaper, the Bengal. After a semester, he was promoted to Editor-in-Chief and stayed in that position for two semesters. In order to do more writing, he switched to the News Editor position at the paper. Logan is now working hard to ensure the Bengal has stellar news coverage.
