Research introduction

1.1 Research background

As guardians and mirrors of the nation, the media play an important role in society and influence editorial policy. In trying to understand what mass media means, Lazar Field and Kendal argue that mass reaches all sections of the population more uniformly than other media, and is therefore truly applicable to the medium of radio. However, before proceeding with this work, it is necessary to consider not only the mechanical devices that transmit messages, possibly messages (television cameras, radio microphones, printing presses), but also the use of these machinery to transmit messages. Institutions should also be included. When we talk about mass media such as television, radio, newspapers, magazines, sound recordings, and movies, we are referring to the people, politics, organizations, and technology involved in their production.

In this work, due to the orientation, it will be limited to women. Having the ability to simultaneously reach the league’s audience, from mass media to opencast, leaves television media, radio media, and intermediary media. Television is relatively exclusive compared to radio and dot, but it has its idiosyncrasies. Distracting characters from it, especially for development-oriented, two characteristics often referred to as television’s advantages are visual entitlement and viewer entitlement. do. One such factor is the social competition in which communication takes place. In Nigeria, for example, it is fair to say that since independence the number of television stations has increased to nearly his 36 stations (both stake, federal and private). But this cannot be equated with the forced exposure and exploitation of TV program programmers by the Nigerian media audience. Inspired by the above figures, which appear to be compelling, Nigeria’s Third World situation is still far from UMES Co’s minimum standards for the establishment and use of mass media. UNES Co states that countries should meet what they consider to be minimum standards for mass media demand. Radio is another medium in third world countries. For example, in Nigeria, radio use is a source of information, even among neurodwellers, who make up the majority of the country’s population (okunna, 1992; sob wale and sogbamu, 1984; 1981). Radio is undoubtedly growing in popularity, especially among rural populations, due to its reach and clouding the media landscape faster than television. Reach large audiences at low cost. And because it reaches the morally motivated rural population of the Third World less than any other medium. It has considerable potential to increase knowledge and provide motivation for changing practices, and it needs to be used in a way that is very close to people in order to justify the goals of the media. Situations where some people are cut off from radio range, as is the case in Nigeria, are the most unacceptable for San. The use of radio requires the physical decentralization and democratization of the radio medium, the need to shift the structure of the radio medium to more direct interaction with a larger media audience, and the need for ownership. Rights need to be rebuilt.
