THE POWER OF NETWORKING, MEDIA AND
GOSSIP FOR GOOD
Shawne Duperon (say "dew-PEAR-en") is a six-time EMMY® Award winning producer, PBS host, networking guru and media expert. A Ph.D. candidate in interpersonal communication, her expertise is gossip: how it impacts culture, the workplace, media and personal lives.
Shawne also teaches how our distorted views of media can get in the way of thoughtful, compelling reporting that moves people to positive action. A veteran TV reporter and news producer, she blows away misperceptions about reporters, newsrooms and gossip, which she calls "the cultural glue that holds us together."
Conducting master's degree research into media theory, Shawne identified connections between our cultural reference points — the subjects of what is called gossip — and how news is reported.
Much of Shawne Duperon's research focuses on how we talk and how it shows up in the media. According to Shawne, how we talk is our media and until we change how we talk, our media will never change.
