The landscape of newspapers in Pittsburgh has gone from two major dailies to one outlet printing five times a week.
The Post-Gazette’s recent reduction of two days printed delivery is notable but unsurprising, with similar changes occurring across the country. The PG’s focus on digital products simply reflects the industry’s future.
As engaging video content and social media interaction drown out written content, quality in-depth reporting from professional journalists still has an audience and can make an impact in society.
The trick traditional news organizations are learning – hopefully not too late – is adapting with the ever-changing times.
