What’s the Future for Newspapers? Even if it's not a front page headline, it's no secret that newspapers are losing circulation, shedding staff and in some cases, ceasing daily publication. There seems to be more content on the internet than ever before, but is it the same quality? Is the watchdog role in peril? On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll examine the effect on communities, and on democracy as a whole, as major news organizations continue to cut the bottom line. Join us, Thursday at 9:00, here on 90.3.
