In the thirty years since CNN launched the first 24-hour television news service, an ever-growing army of dedicated channels has arrived on the scene. This groundbreaking edited collection is the first to explore the genre of rolling television news channels. Coverage in and of key regions of the world - including North and South America, Europe, Australia, China, India, and the Middle East - is examined by leading international scholars. The Rise of 24-Hour News Television invites readers to explore the diverse ways in which round-the-clock news channels have reshaped the genre of news and, in a broader sense, the impact they have had on democracy itself.
"24-hour news is part of everyday life, whether via Twitter (for people over 30); cable and satellite (for people over 40); newspapers (for people over 50); or gossip sites (for everyone). This outstanding new collection gives us both historical insight and geographical and intellectual diversity - stay tuned." (Professor Toby Miller, University of California, Riverside)
"This panoramic, global work is smart, thoughtful, and exhaustive, the antithesis of the in-depth trivia and fast-breaking rumor, innuendo and speculation that much of 24-hour news has become. I am mightily impressed by the laser focus and scholarship." (Howard Rosenberg, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, co-author of 'No Time to Think: The Menace of Media Speed and the 24-hour News Cycle')
"While CNN was the first TV channel to offer a rolling 24-hour news service, in the three decades since it was launched hundreds of such channels have emerged at the global, national and even local level. Moreover, these channels have become a ubiquitous feature of modern public spaces, as the home no longer has a monopoly on television screens. This outstanding collection by Stephen Cushion and Justin Lewis is the first sustained effort to analytically address this broad genre as a whole and to elucidate its impact. From a variety of perspectives, and with admirable clarity, the chapters explore the development of 24/7 news, its technology, economics and politics. Most importantly, with its wide-ranging topics and the diversity of angles, the book illuminates the significance of this genre for the values and practices of journalism, for audiences, and for democracy itself. Engaging and accessible, this is truly a welcomed contribution." (Peter Dahlgren, Lund University, Sweden)
"This account of the rise of instantly disposable news is revealing about changes in the culture and practice of journalism, and also for a reappraisal of globalisation. De-westernising journalism studies in an intelligent way, this book deserves to be read around the world." (Professor James Curran, Goldsmiths, University of London)
