Keeping it in the family

The Boston Globe reporterd on an attempt by a group of local businessmen to buy the Worcester Telegram & Gazette from The New York Times Corp.

The two gents heading the group are led by a former editor of the T&G and “Ralph D. Crowley Jr., chief executive of Polar Beverages Co.”

What serves the greater good: havign the local paper served by a local figure who would not seem to have newspaper experience, or a huge newspaper entity from out of the area? Does a more local representation necessarily mean a return/maintenance of jobs to (relatively) local residents?

Stay tuned.

  • A reluctant welcome

    It’s no secret what’s going on the field of print journalism. It’s going into the crapper. I wonder if Mr. Internet realized this would happen when he invented the World Wide Web. Regardless, the situation is here and we’re stuck with it. The purpose of this blog is to blow off a little steam, and I invite my fellow ink-stained wretches to join in with their own tales of woe or triumph. Maybe this will turn into a nice little support network. Questions? Suggestions? E-mail me at worriedjournalist(at) gmail(dot)com.
