This week on The Debrief Podcast, a breakdown of the most-asked questions we received in the newsroom since the Novel Coronavirus outbreak began in New York. Josh Durso and Ted Baker discuss, and look forward to a potentially permanently changed region.
Earlier this month the news and newspaper industry was rocked by the headlines that Gannett and GateHouse would be joining forces in a merger of epic proportions. The $1.4 billion deal clears way for what New Media CEO Mike Reed says will be better, stronger journalism. That said, not everyone takes the merger as a sign of ‘good times’. Rather, some view more merger prospects as a net-negative for news products across the board, and those who work in the industry.
This week on Inside the FLX – the topic of mergers in media, and the future journalists face.
Guests in-studio included Professor Steven Keeler, Director of the School of Media and Arts at Cayuga Community College; Ted Baker, Program Director and Host of Finger Lakes Morning News on Finger Lakes News Radio; and Jim Meaney, Founder and Reporter for the Citizen Journalism outlet Geneva Believer.
