Print is still where the profits are

February 1, 2020

I will remember fall ’19 as a season of research. I was involved in two major newspaper studies: one related to millennials for North Dakota Newspaper Foundation and one to determine how community newspapers benefit (or suffer) from their digital presence, as part of a project I led for the Texas Center for Community Journalism (TCCJ).

In my previous column, I shared some of the information we gathered about news consumption among millennials. Now it’s time to share a little of what I learned while engaged in the digital project with TCCJ.

Postal

Republicans block HR 2382

January 1, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The days before Congress makes big spending decisions are traditionally the most active for NNA’s Congressional Action Team. That is when House and Senate leadership get serious about packaging bills that are in their queue into one giant measure for an up-or-down vote. 

It is also traditionally when measures that affect the U.S. Postal Service are passed — or not passed. The CAT’s archives in December chalked up one more big effort to improve the odds for maintaining universal service across the United States. But its efforts came to naught as Republicans blocked a bill NNA had supported.
