Barnett featured in
WRAL-TV news package


Brooke Barnett, an assistant professor of communications, was interviewed for a April 25 WRAL-TV story on a local murder case.

The story focused on media coverage of the murder of April Greer. Greer was pregnant when she disappeared. Her body was recently discovered and her husband was arrested, under suspicion for commiting the crime. Barnett, whose areas of research include the study of broadcast news, compared the limited national coverage of this case to the extensive media coverage of the murder of Laci Peterson in California.

WRAL-TV is based in Raleigh. Barnett's interview took place in the School of Communications television studios.
