A Look at Collegiate Newspapers & Programs

I asked my new friend, Kevin Schwartz to coauthor a column about the trend of college newspapers toward reducing print days or moving away from print to digital.

Why JCPenney and Newhouse have a lot in common
As a speaker, teacher and consultant, the idea of trying to say something that will be helpful and valuable to different types of audiences, even though they’re all related to the newspaper industry, can be very daunting.

In the constantly evolving world of communication, of which we are a major player, we are bombarded daily with the idea that we’re missing something. There must be some golden key out there which will unlock the door to future success. Without that key, we fear, we are doomed to failure.
