The Evolution of Communication Since the earliest of years, communication has been an important part of life. The term communication is defined as a means to give or interchange thoughts, feelings, information, or the like, by writing, speaking, gesturing, etcetera ( Stein, 298).

Lee de Forest and David Sarnoff. Perhaps I had once learned about them in school, though more than likely they have been the subject of jokes on an episode of The Simpsons or South Park. It was the name Edwin Howard Armstrong that I had never heard of. It amazes me that so many brilliant inventors could be lost in the shuffle of history, overshadowed by people with far less talent and worthiness.

Introduction Over the course of the next two essays we will explore and analyze growth of radio as it matured over the years in addition to what could’ve happened differently had radio been developed during the poverty of the Depression era rather than the wealthy atmosphere of the 1920s. 1. Discuss the evolution of radio from the 1940’S to the present, reflecting on significant changes. During World War II, radio was a key lifeline of information for the masses. Listeners from audiences around
There are lots of things I always wanted to do when I was a kid. But when I got older I realized I couldn’t do some of those things. But now since I’ve got older I finally decided what I would love to do. I would love to become a radio broadcaster. It all started freshmen year I decided to do debate. I looked down the sheet and I asked my teacher what I could do. He replied, “Why don’t you do radio?” So I wrote radio and I went to the competition. It was my first radio performance in debate all
