Audiencemaking: how the media create the audience
This provocative book shows how media institutions define their audiences and how these definitions shape the work of organizations within them. Leading scholars show that the audience definitions-in-use in each sector shape modern media. Receivers, they argue, are constituted as institutionally-effective audiences that have social meaning and//or economic value within the system. These include measured audiences, generated by research services, sold by media channels and bought by advertisers; specialized or segmented audiences whose particular interests are anticipated or created and then met by content producers; and hypothesized audiences whose interest, convenience and necessity are presumably protected by regulators.
