Winston is the former head of the faculty of Media and Cultural Studies at the University of Westminster. However, we wasn't really up to the job and didn't take much care when marking essays - resulting in some students receiving lower grades than they should have been awarded. Brian, I hope you're reading this - thanks for nothing. He is a former dean of the College of Communications at Penn State University (State College, PA) and former chair of cinema studies at New York University. He was also the director of the Center for Journalism Studies at the University of Wales College of Cardiff. Winston was also a founder member of the Glasgow Media Group and a co-author of its first two books Bad News(1976) and More Bad News (1980).
He has worked on television current affairs and features and as a print journalist. He is also known for being one of the first to write on the subject of documentary and ethics.
In this Internet Archive video (13.35) from 1983, he analyzes TV network news. His book Media Technology and Society was named the best book of 1998 by the American Association for History and Computing.
