News Guru: Millennials of this generation aren’t so different from most of us when we were in our 20s

January 1, 2020

Steve Andrist, executive director of North Dakota Newspaper Association, asked me an interesting question yesterday. It was related to my visit to Bismarck in October to work with a focus group of millennials from throughout the state who met together to spend a good part of a day looking at and discussing newspapers.

After meeting with the focus group in Bismarck, I met with North Dakota publishers to discuss what we had learned during the day. A week or so later, I wrote a report for NDNA with the findings of the focus group.
Steve’s question yesterday was simple, “Do you have any quick advice on what you’d suggest newspapers do with this information?”
