The Maverick will be discussing how the media has changed for the good or the bad over the past 20 years. Also, much can be said about black representation in the media. For example, back in 1989 it was said that black and other non-white ethnic groups comprised 9.9 percent of all newspaper staffs. As late as 2007, those numbers had not changed much at 10.1 percent. And that was before the recent economic downturn, which has been the demise of several print media outlets. Scheduled guests: Lloyd Gite, former electronic journalist in the Houston market and frequent contributor to several print publications. Ms. Celeste E. Whittaker, book author and print journalist whose career has spanned for nearly 20 years.
