Joe Saltzman and the IJPC 2003©
Revised January 2006


EDITOR'S NOTE: A work in progress, this bibliography is still being proofread and fact-checked. Titles alone contain incomplete information. The bibliography is meant to be used with the Image of the Journalist in Popular Culture (IJPC) Database© available exclusively to IJPC Associates.


Female journalists appear in the following films, television and radio programs, novels and short stories, plays, cartoons, comic books, comic strips, art works, songs, games and commercials. Some are newshawks who act more like detectives than journalists. Others are investigative reporters, editors, publishers, columnists, foreign and war correspondents, cubs, critics, photojournalists, sportswriters, freelance journalists, urban and country newspaperwomen, or anonymous reporters shouting out questions. Also included are public relations practitioners and press agents. Some are central characters. Others make a brief appearance and then disappear forever. Many are simply part of a pack of anonymous reporters who show up for a press conference or a news report. All leave impressions in the minds of the audience.

This is as complete a list of female journalists in films, TV and radio programs and fiction as ever compiled, but as with any such endeavor, there may be errors and omissions. Please e-mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to correct any errors or add any items that are not included. Your help is appreciated.
