Interesting read about how local news is dying. I know the same thing is happening in Canada. The local paper in Prince George stopped printing just before I moved here a year ago. It does have a website though.
I’ve read that much of this death is due to the hyper-targeted advertising that Facebook, Google, Amazon, and others can provide that have sucked up much of the advertising in local newspapers. Instead of just aiming for your community, you aim for that 40 year old dad that needs a snowblower.
