Many of the print newspapers that we grew up with are declining or even going extinct. Where will we now get news and information that maintains the current high standards of print journalism? In some cities, new Internet news sites are springing up and are the “digital response to the collapse of the newspaper business.” Are they succeeding? Our guest tonight is DAN KENNEDY, assistant professor of journalism at Northeastern University and working journalist for almost 40 years. His new book is THE WIRED CITY: REIMAGINING JOURNALISM AND CIVIC LIFE IN THE POST-NEWSPAPER AGE. This book looks closely at The New Haven Independent, a vibrant on-line and free source of local news in New Haven, Connecticut. How do they do it? How do they pay the bills? How many readers do they have? Are these non-profit on-line news sources the model for future? Please tune in for an important and lively discussion about the future of journalism.
