The shifting tide of reading & reporting local news from newspapers to online outlets
As the decline of newspaper print circulation continues, the number of people who turn to Facebook, Twitter and other social media for short, almost real-time, news updates is on the rise.

Michael Farrell; and, from Soapbox Media, Publisher Dacia Snider and Editor John Fox.
