The Incredible Shrinking Newspaper

Posted Friday, June 20, 2008

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

Across the country, daily newspapers are shrinking. Ohio's largest paper is about to get smaller. The Plain Dealer is talking about more cuts in staff and newsprint. The internet, the loss of ad revenue, the changes in readership are all crippling newspapers. We'll talk with Plain Dealer publisher Terrance Z. Egger and analysts about the future of local news and how well papers can serve as watchdogs over the government if the cuts get too deep. Join Regina Brett tomorrow for a conversation about the survival of newspapers starting at 9:00 a.m. on The Sound of Ideas
