We’ve seen reports for years now about the decline of local news in America. Articles about the current state of local publications across the country often call it a national crisis, and one without an obvious solution.

On this episode of All IN, we will hear about why this is happening, what effect corporate buyouts have on newspapers, and whether independent sources and social media can replace local newsrooms.


All IN is produced by Drew Daudelin.

Guests:

Bob Zaltsberg

Special Projects Editor, WFIU/WTIU News; Former Editor, The Herald-Times

Jonas Bjork

Professor in the Department of Journalism and Public Relations, IUPUI

Joshua Darr

Assistant Professor of Political Communication, Louisiana State University
