Broadcasters Quotes By Evan Davis

For me, the main principle for broadcasters has to be that if people stand to benefit from an interview, they should be prepared to face some downside as well. — Evan Davis

Broadcasters Quotes By Larry Herzberg

Two common Chinese words that are usually pronounced incorrectly here in the U.S., by nearly all television and radio broadcasters, are the words "Beijing" and "yuan." The "j" in the name of China's capital city is not pronounced with the soft "j" sound like Je suis in French. The Chinese language lacks that sound entirely. The "j" in "Beijing" is pronounced like the "j" in "jingle." The yuan is China's currency, just as the dollar is ours. It is not pronounced "you-anne" or "you-awn." It is pronounced "you-when," or "U.N." when said quickly as if it were one syllable. — Larry Herzberg

Broadcasters Quotes By Tony Benn

Broadcasting is really too important to be left to the broadcasters. — Tony Benn

Broadcasters Quotes By Emmett Shear

Twitch launched in June of 2011, and our growth ever since has exceeded even my expectations, which were not small. A year and a half later, the community of broadcasters and viewers has multiplied hundreds of percent. — Emmett Shear

Broadcasters Quotes By Wadah Khanfar

In 1996, Al Jazeera was the first TV station in the Arab world to allow Israelis to appear on the screen and express their views and address the Arab world. Before that, Arab broadcasters did not allow what was perceived as the enemy to appear on the screen. — Wadah Khanfar

Broadcasters Quotes By Jon Miller

I learned the game on the radio. Russ Hodges and Lon Simmons were the Giants broadcasters when I was growing up in the Bay area, and they taught me about the game. They taught me about the subtleties of the game, but they also gave me the game and let me enjoy it. That's the main thing, whether it's TV or radio. You have to give the fans the game, and if it's a Giants broadcast, the vast majority are Giants fans. In terms of story lines, most would be about the Giants. — Jon Miller

Broadcasters Quotes By Joe Bowen

I think the biggest mistake anyone can make is trying to be the next someone, and try to mimic or copy someone who is already out there because you have to produce your own personality and your own sound, and go from there. That is something all great broadcasters have been able to do. — Joe Bowen

Broadcasters Quotes By Bart Gordon

Broadcasters have a responsibility to serve the public interest and protect Americans from objectionable content, particularly during the hours when children are likely to be watching. — Bart Gordon

Broadcasters Quotes By Bryan Fuller

International broadcasters are often dependent on an American home broadcasting network, so it changes the game entirely. — Bryan Fuller

Broadcasters Quotes By Chris Hegedus

Since I shoot, record audio and edit, I was able to begin the filming without hiring a crew and create a sample to show broadcasters and grant organizations. — Chris Hegedus

Broadcasters Quotes By Dick Enberg

On the air, it's as if somebody draws a heavy drape to block any bias. I don't even feel it inside. It's the same curtain that keeps you from swearing. I've known broadcasters who can't get one sentence out in normal conversation without being profane, and yet, they can go on the air and talk for three hours and never slip once. — Dick Enberg

Broadcasters Quotes By Jeff Van Gundy

How forthright does the audience want the broadcasters to be? Because when you tell your truth, there's a lot of anger that comes out. I think it's a good question to ask TV people [executives] too. How much truth do they want to be told? How much truth does the league want told? Because the truth isn't just a positive truth. If you're going to tell the truth, you would be telling a lot of positive and some negative. — Jeff Van Gundy

Broadcasters Quotes By Fred Upton

For those broadcasters who are less than responsible, the FCC needs to have sharper teeth to enforce the law. — Fred Upton

Broadcasters Quotes By Will.i.am

We need creative people working with broadcasters, making smart content to inspire people to be geniuses. — Will.i.am

Broadcasters Quotes By Robert McChesney

The commercial broadcasters have tremendous influence in Washington, D.C., for a couple of reasons. First, they're extremely rich and they have lots of money and they have had for a long time, so they can give money to politicians, which gets their attention. — Robert McChesney

Broadcasters Quotes By Reed Hundt

The public owns the airwaves; Congress gave them to broadcasters for free, with the understanding that they would serve the public interest while trying to maximize profit. An aspect of serving the public is to use the immense power of electronic media to reflect evolving standards of respect for other people. — Reed Hundt

Broadcasters Quotes By Gary Lineker

I try to avoid saying 'fantastic' too often and 'obviously' is a dangerous word for all broadcasters. — Gary Lineker

Broadcasters Quotes By Charlie Ergen

If the broadcasters were to win on their claims, they'd outlaw the DVR. — Charlie Ergen

Broadcasters Quotes By N. T. Wright

I came to Paul at quite an early age, having already studied Plato and Aristotle; and I found Paul easily their intellectual equal, though he was handling these amazing questions about God, Jesus, Israel, faith and so on. He continues to be an amazingly stimulating thinker, especially when we try to understand the flow of thought in letter after letter rather than just combing him for a few verses on 'our favourite topics', which, sadly, some Christian teachers do just as some journalists and broadcasters do! — N. T. Wright

Broadcasters Quotes By Tony Benn

I sometimes wish the trade unionists who work in the mass media, those who are writers and broadcasters and secretaries and printers and lift operators of Thomson House would remember that they too are members of our working class movement and have a responsibility to see that what is said about us is true. — Tony Benn

Broadcasters Quotes By Robert McChesney

The number one lobby that opposes campaign finance reform in the United States is the National Association of Broadcasters. — Robert McChesney

Broadcasters Quotes By Ken Loach

One lesson to learn is that the press and the broadcasters are not neutral. And it seems we have to learn it each time there is a dispute: they are actually committed to one side. — Ken Loach

Broadcasters Quotes By Jeremy Hunt

I don't think the BBC supporting digital switchover is top slicing. Top slicing is putting the license fee up for grabs for other broadcasters to bid for. — Jeremy Hunt

Broadcasters Quotes By Bob Costas

There are some times when sports rises to the level of news and when sports broadcasters acquit themselves as well as the best news broadcasters do, they aren't there to dramatize. They're there as journalists. — Bob Costas

Broadcasters Quotes By Caitlin Moran

So this is why I can't agree with "don't feed the trolls." When millionaire celebrity broadcasters and entire publications start trolling, ignoring them isn't really an option anymore. They are gradually making trolling normative. We have to start feeding the trolls: feeding them with achingly polite emails and comments, reminding them of how billions of people prefer to communicate with each other, every day, in the most unregulated arena of all: courteously. — Caitlin Moran

Broadcasters Quotes By Subhash Chandra

Advertising revenue available for all programmers, all broadcasters is not enough to create quality programming, and subscription revenues are very, very minimal which come to all programmers. — Subhash Chandra

Broadcasters Quotes By John Madden

I would never be one to critique the announcers when I watched games. I try to watch the play and listen to the broadcasters and what they are pointing out. I was never one to say this one was good or bad. — John Madden

Broadcasters Quotes By Reed Hundt

Isn't it only appropriate that, in return for the free use of the public spectrum, broadcasters provide something substantial, something that wouldn't otherwise be provided by marketplace competition? — Reed Hundt

Broadcasters Quotes By Yoweri Museveni

Our laws and institutions are excellent, but the population is not yet ready. They must develop their views and need to be provided with the right information. We now also have private broadcasters and many are very critical of me, hostile even, yet they operate freely. — Yoweri Museveni

Broadcasters Quotes By Bill Moyers

A profound transformation is happening here. The framers of our nation never envisioned these huge media giants; never imagined what could happen if big government, big publishing and big broadcasters ever saw eye-to-eye in putting the public's need for news second to their own interests. I approach the end of my own long run believing more strongly than ever that the quality of journalism and the quality of democracy are inextricably joined ... — Bill Moyers

Broadcasters Quotes By Dick Costolo

We've recognized that Twitter is the second screen for TV, and TV is more fun with Twitter. There are a bunch of ways that we can be complementary to broadcasters. — Dick Costolo

Broadcasters Quotes By Franny Armstrong

I made my first film McLibel independently but only by accident. I tried to get a commission from all the standard TV broadcasters but because they had been sued by McDonald's in the past none of them would commission me so I ended up making it by credit cards and rich boyfriends (I'm joking - about the boyfriends). — Franny Armstrong

Broadcasters Quotes By John Tesh

People like Bryant Gumbel and Bob Costas are terrific broadcasters because they get challenged every day. — John Tesh

Broadcasters Quotes By Malcolm Turnbull

Broadcasters or politicians or writers who think that they are respecting Struggle Street, the battlers, by dumbing things down into one-line sound bites are not respecting them, they are treating them with contempt. It's our job above all in politics to tackle the big issues and to explain them. — Malcolm Turnbull

Broadcasters Quotes By Charlie Ergen

Some people are averse to change, but the advertising model is going to change with or without the Hopper. What we're saying to the broadcasters is, 'There's a way for you not to put your head in the sand.' — Charlie Ergen

Broadcasters Quotes By Charlie Ergen

Ultimately, broadcasters and advertisers have to change the way they do business or they run the risk of linear TV becoming obsolete. — Charlie Ergen

Broadcasters Quotes By Judith C. Waller

The code of the National Association of Broadcasters enunciates as a cardinal principle in American radio the provision of time by stations, without charge, for the presentation of public questions of a controversial nature. At the same time, it advises against the sale of time for the presentation of controversial issues except in the case of political broadcasts during political campaigns. The basic foundation for the prohibition against the sale of time for the presentation of controversial issues is the public duty of broadcasters to present such issues, regardless of the willingness of others to pay for their presentation. If time were sold for that purpose, it would have to be sold to all with the ability to pay, and as a result the advantage in any discussion would rest largely with those having the greater financial means to buy broadcasting time. — Judith C. Waller

Broadcasters Quotes By John Seabrook

You can get in a car in Maine and drive all the way to California and hear the same Top 40 songs on the same chain broadcasters," bemoaned the report. — John Seabrook

Broadcasters Quotes By Gordon Smith

For years, broadcasters didn't get a nickel out of retransmission consent. But broadcast content is what the cable industry was selling to customers. — Gordon Smith

Broadcasters Quotes By Padgett Powell

Now she understood a few things: that the American academy, which one might have thought the place to defend freedom of speech, had been the seat and soul of abrogating freedom of speech, if the first assault on its freedom can be said to be restricting, or handcuffing speech. The day she heard "redneck" on NPR, she turned NPR off, not because broadcasters were still using the term, but because she knew one day they would not be. In fact, she had a vision of the quiet moment backstage at a Boston studio when a good, surprised correspondent was let go for saying "redneck" the last time it would be said. — Padgett Powell

Broadcasters Quotes By Marshall McLuhan

The public has yet to see TV as TV. Broadcasters have no awareness of its potential. The movie people are just beginning to get a grasp on film. — Marshall McLuhan

Broadcasters Quotes By Robert McChesney

If you look at the history of broadcasting, what you find is the National Association of Broadcasters is a trade association whose mission is to protect the interests of the commercial broadcasters. — Robert McChesney

Broadcasters Quotes By Eddie Trunk

Guys like Howard Stern, Bill O'Reilly, Jim Rome, Bill Maher, those are the guys I love and respect as broadcasters. — Eddie Trunk

Broadcasters Quotes By Harry E. Sloan

I remember one of the legendary German broadcasters saying, "Germany's future is America's present," and it really was that with the penetration of television. — Harry E. Sloan

Broadcasters Quotes By Tony Benn

The present combination of corporate or commercial control theoretically answerable to politically appointed Boards of Governors is not in any sense a democratic enough procedure to control the power the broadcasters have. — Tony Benn

Broadcasters Quotes By Lino Rulli

There's a reason why very few people listen to Catholic radio, very few people watch Catholic TV. It's because there's no quality to it and so it's like, if you put quality there, if you're real broadcasters, you make it entertaining. — Lino Rulli

Broadcasters Quotes By Tom Standage

In the United States radio was centralized to maximize advertising revenue; in Britain to preserve and promote the values of the elite; and in Germany to advance Nazi propaganda. Whatever the reason, the result was the most centralized medium in history. In the United States radio listeners were gathered up by networks that saw them as consumers to be sold to; in Britain they were the masses to be instructed and improved; in Germany they were the people to be indoctrinated and misled. In each case there was a striking "us and them" division between broadcasters and the faceless mass of their listeners. — Tom Standage

Broadcasters Quotes By Andrzej Wajda

In Europe, there is no television filmmaking legislation that could assist film production because private broadcasters are not interested in supporting Polish film. — Andrzej Wajda

Broadcasters Quotes By Ray Bradbury

Whirl man's mind around about so fast under the pumping hands of publishers, exploiters, broadcasters that the centrifuge flings off all unnecessary, time-wasting thought! — Ray Bradbury
