By Susan Cuccinello This Thursday, in many homes across America, attention will be split between what’s happening in the kitchen – where Thanksgiving meal prep will be underway – and what’s happening on the nearest video screen – which may well be tuned to NBC’s coverage of the 88th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® in New York City.   While there will be several regional and local Thanksgiving parades taking place, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is one of the oldest and dates back to 1924; televised coverage began in 1952.   Although Continue Reading

As we all know, words are wind, but sometimes that wind can be very biting. “…We’re still doing TV ratings on something more analogous to political polling,” says Time Magazine columnist James Poniewozik in a recent Public Radio International Continue Reading

The midterm elections have come and gone. Like with any other contest, there were winners and there were losers.
