The noun media is the plural form of the singular noun medium when it is a word for:

  • a particular form or system of communication (such as newspapers, radio, or television);
  • the materials or methods used by an artist;
  • the thing by which or through which something is done;
  • a surrounding condition or environment.

Note: The plural form of the singular noun 'medium' as a word for a person who claims to be able to communicate with the spirits of dead people is mediums.
