Young Adults South Africans Motivations for Watching and their Reception of Locally-Produced Television News: An Exploratory Study.
By Musawenkosi Wiseman Ndlovu (2008)
An accumulative body of international scholarly work into youth-news media relationship strongly points to a statistical and qualitative decline in the share of young adults who regularly attend to television news. However, because of its research focus and general orientation, this body of work has so far paid little or no attention to young adultsí aesthetical reception of television news, let alone in the South African context. For the present work, an understanding of young South Africanís aesthetical reception of television news is central to the appreciation of the relationship between them and television news- a relationship, which in turn, magnifies on the relationship between young adults and the general public sphere.
