Celebrity Culture - Radio Show

Hello, I am Julianne, a co-op student currently placed at Regent Park Focus Youth Media Arts Centre. On Wednesday November 2nd, I had the opportunity to do a live radio show during Media Literacy Week. Media Literacy Week was a great interactive way to encourage youth to learn about and explore different aspects of media. During my show, I touched on the topic of celebrity culture and the different opinions of those in the industry, as well as those who use media everyday. According to Wikipedia, celebrity culture is “a high-volume perpetuation of celebrities’ personal lives on a global scale”. I talked about how the whole star system started in 1903, and how it as evolved through the years through the growth of media. We also talked about how much young people want to be famous- 51% of 18-25 year olds to be exact. It was amazing and fun to record, and I implore you to check it out.
