Description

In this presentation, Dr. Helen Morgan Parmett examines the ways in which KVOS – Bellingham’s first local radio and television station – helped constitute a sense of “local” identity and culture in the 1930s-1960s, and also the role KVOS played in broader debates over what it means for media to serve the local, public interest. Morgan Parmett’s research on this topic drew extensively on the Rogan Jones papers and KVOS records housed at the Center for Pacific Northwest Studies.
