Brooke Gladstone decodes what we hear, read, and see every day, arming citizens with the critical tools necessary to survive the information age in their program On The Media.

Turn on, tune in, and wise up! In today's fast-moving society, the media has become ubiquitous white noise — broadcasters and print professionals filter our political process, shape a sense of national culture, and drive the engines of our economy. On The Media decodes what we hear, read and see every day, arming citizens with the critical tools necessary to survive the information age. It cuts through the cacophony with compelling reportage, uncommon insight, a sense of urgency and an arched eyebrow.

During this time she edited several award-winning reports and was the recipient of a Peabody Award, an Overseas Press Club Award, and an Ohio State Award, among other honors. In 1995, she became NPR's first media correspondent, examining the coverage of race, science, and politics, and reporting on the battle between Hollywood and the many guardians of American culture, media mergers, advertising trends, and journalism's evolving ethics. She joined WNYC in 2000 to become managing editor and co-host, with Bob Garfield, of WNYC's national weekly analysis program, On The Media.
