Veteran local journalist and Howard Hughes author Geoff Schumacher will address the Las Vegas Writers Group this March regarding ‘The Future of the Newspaper.’
The news about newspapers sounds grim. A few prominent papers have ceased publishing. A few others have filed for bankruptcy protection. Still others survive only on the Internet. Have evolving reading habits doomed the great American newspaper to the recycling bin of history, or are recent developments only a temporary setback? What about the thousands of reporters, columnists and editors who draw their paychecks and feed their souls by chasing the news? What will become of them if the industry continues to crumble? Schumacher will tackle these issues and others, suggesting a brighter perspective than the doom and gloom that pervades the industry.
