Elizabeth Clark, associate professor and department chair of communication, and Mark Smith, assistant professor of communication, have co-authored a study for publication in both a broadcast trade newspaper and a juried journal. The study examines the availability of Issues-Programs Lists, available to the public, from commercial and noncommercial radio stations in Missouri. The Lists outline the community service programming broadcast each quarter. Under FCC rules, the public may inspect the quarterly reports and offer program suggestions to meet the needs of the community. The trade article appears in the latest paper and digital editions of Radio World and may be accessed at A scholarly version of the article will appear in Winter 2008 edition of Journal of Radio Studies. Truman students participated in the research, and Clark and Smith have taken the research into the classroom with a presentation to students in Principles of Communication as an example of scholarly research.
