On the Radio
Political cartoons were the talk show hosts and websites of yesterday. Now, a USF faculty member has amassed quite a collection of cartoons that, with the help of the USF Library, is being displayed at the Tampa Museum of Art. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 explores the exhibit and finds out how this art has developed over the years, while seemingly always having an effect on political discourse.
Radio - During "Morning Edition" on WUSF 89.7 Tuesday after the 6:45 AM and 8:45 AM newscasts | During "All Things Considered" on WUSF 89.7 Tuesday at 5:44 PM | After "Florida Matters" on WSMR 89.1 Monday just before 10:30 PM
