The Museum of Broadcast Communications

It is not surprising that Chicago, home of such radio personalities as Paul Harvey and Studs Terkel, should also be the home of the Museum of Broadcast Communications, one of only two museums dedicated to broadcast history in the United States. Persons doing research on broadcast history will find the online archive most helpful, as it contains a searchable database of 13,000 television programs, 4,000 radio programs, 11,000 television commercials, and 4,500 newscasts. Educators will find the online exhibits and lessons plans located here, particularly a special Museum Web site titled The Great Debate that contains video clips, photos, and newspaper articles that deal with the televised Presidential debates from the past 40 years. The site is rounded out by information for those wishing to visit the museum in person, membership forms, and an online store.
