Recent research indicates that local media outlets are trusted by a majority of Americans even as trust in national outlets has declined. It’s easy to understand why Acadiana has trust in our local media; in addition to providing us with important information about our area, they are active participants in our community. So who better to answer our questions about “the media” than our own local experts. Here tonight to share their insight and answer some of your questions about the sometimes elusive media industry, we have Sean Trcalek, General Manager, KADN/KLAF and Chuck Wood, General Manager, Delta Media Corp.
