“Will Newspapers Survive?”

November 15, 2020 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Presenter:  Bob Friday, Reporter, Editor, Designer.

Print subscriptions are falling, newsroom staffs are being cut, advertising has flown the coop to online, the president calls the media the “enemy of the people.” Do newspapers have a future?

Bob recently retired from a 43-year career with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. But as the night editor for the last three years, Bob decided which stories made the front page of the MJS and which got the highest priority on the MJS website. He also worked with reporters, edited stories, and worked with page designers and editors who may, on any given night, have been in Iowa, Kentucky or who knows where. Bob Friday will share his well-developed sense of the future for newspapers.

Forum Host:  Jo Ann Bachar
