Will Roberts’ Weekly Telegram
“All I ever knew I read in the newspaper” was not only a famous Will Rogers quote but also the honest truth. Rogers scoured any and all newsprint he could get his hands on, which made for some incredible viewpoints. Will Roberts has updated that quote, “All I ever knew I read on the Internet.” With millions of news events being sent to the web, Will is sure to never run out of things to say. In a world where talk radio has become talk at you radio, Will is embarking on a territory that has not been touched in a long time, the world of communication. People talking to each other.
Will also recognizes the power of technology and social media on our culture and how we communicate. He delves into issues surrounding these forces in an effort to make sure we stay connected to one another. Too often media and technology isolate and polarize, but Will desires to build bridges and forge relationships.
