Dr. Andrew Bottomley, Assistant Professor of Media Studies in SUNY Oneonta’s Department of Communication & Media, is featured in a CNN online news report titled “Can podcasts survive the billion dollar hype?”
Dr. Bottomley was interviewed by “It’s Lou!” host Lou Foglia about the current state of the podcasting industry, in the wake of hundreds-of-millions of dollars of recent investment in the medium from the likes of Spotify (which acquired the podcasting startups Gimlet Media, Anchor, and Parcast). Dr. Bottomley teaches and researches radio, podcasting, and the cultural convergence of broadcast media and the internet.
“It’s Lou!” is a commentary show covering media, technology, economics, and global politics for Beme News, CNN’s millennial-centric YouTube channel. Foglia interviewed Dr. Bottomley as background research for his story, and he references Dr. Bottomley numerous times in his commentary and analysis.
