28, 2013
: Twenty-five Rotarians and guests
were present to hear speaker Gary Grossman, Publisher of The Daily Item speak about the business of newspapers. Tom Gates
was the host. Tom’s wife, Ann, was also present. Wes Knapp presided. Gary spoke
candidly about the cost cutting efforts that have occurred in print media –
smaller page, fewer sections, less expensive paper, graphic hubs, etc. This is
necessary because of the cost of print versus the use of mobile devices in the
delivery of news and ads. Some papers have gone to only being on line or
cutting to three days only in print. This is clearly a “challenging” time in and
for print media.
