OPB’s daily radio show “Think Out Loud” is coming to Medford to broadcast a live show discussing the results of a recent “State of the Media” survey. The local community is invited to attend to be part of the live audience. Host David Miller will ask about how individuals consume media around the state with a special focus on the Medford area.

The “State of the Media” survey was commissioned through a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation received by the Oregon Community Foundation and Oregon Public Broadcasting. It examines the current trends in how Oregonians get their news. The survey also assesses how people feel about the quality of the news they receive, and how informed they feel about what’s happening around the state and region.

This event is open to the public and admission is free. Seating is on a first come-first served basis.
