The Friday Reporter, a PR Daily podcast

In this episode, host Lisa Camooso Miller visits with Howard Mortman the communications director for C-SPAN.  Mortman has a daily bird’s eye view of the political process—from the U.S. House to U.S. Senate to the Administration and all the ways industries aim to influence these bodies of government.

Mortman highlights how C-SPAN’s model really changed the way we view elected leaders in their day-to-day processes, and influenced the 24-hour news cycle as it exists day, while strictly maintaining neutrality.

He also previews some of the new technologies the network is bringing online in 2022, the excitement that the midterm elections promise to bring and how C-SPAN is funded as a nonprofit news outlet.
