“Imagine, if you will, sitting down to your morning coffee, turning on your home computer to read the day’s newspaper,” says the KRON anchor.

One Response to The Future of Journalism?

    I found two things very interesting..
    The first being “we aren’t in it to make money”… It was interesting to me because of how much the online news reporting has grown. The second being the fact that the man at the news stand at the end “doesn’t have to worry about losing his job.” I guess it was just a little funny to me because in a Sales course that I am currently taking we have discussed the fact that new readers have declined and existing readers have very specific buying habits which makes for an uncertain future for a lot of people.
