2012: Nadja Hahn


Nadja is a radio reporter from the Austrian broadcasting service ORF for her research on how social media affects the quality of radio journalism. As Hahn notes, “before the Internet gave us Facebook and Twitter, radio was the closest thing we had to a social medium, and the phone-in was the most interactive format out there. It is therefore fascinating to see how the medium is adapting and how radio journalism in particular is rising to the challenge." Her report is available here.
