Thesis (M.A.)--University of Colorado at Boulder, 2005
The media serve many functions in our lives. One of the ways in which we as audience members are most able to participate in the media is through talk shows. The type of show considered within this thesis is a particular form of call-in talk show. Call-in talk shows serve many purposes including advising, supporting, and informing callers who elect to contact the host directly, as well as to satisfy the needs of audience members who may never be known to the host. People tune in to these shows for a variety of reasons including to be advised or educated, to learn how to give advice, to reinforce or learn norms, to put their own problems into perspective through listening to the problems of others, or simply to be entertained by the situations callers find themselves in or the ways in which the hosts handle the callers. In this thesis I examine calls to the popular programs of Dr. Laura and the Sunday Night Sex Show. I use an ethnography of communication approach to identify interpersonal troubles talk-based call-in shows as a unique genre of speech event. I then examine this genre with relation to the differences that exist between the programs and the differing ideologies that are revealed
