Talk of Alaska: New Russian Media

Radio MayakSince the collapse of the Soviet Union, people in Russia have had to rethink how they approach the news media. The resulting system has incorporated elements from many different places — sometimes it looks like the BBC and sometimes it looks like Fox. Our guests are two young Russian journalists who are visiting Alaska. They tell us about the rapid changes in Russian media — and take your calls.
