Imagine There's No Sports Page

It's easy if you try. With the future of Philly's dailies in doubt, who will feed the insatiable appetite of the city's sports junkies?

“Good post... very thought provoking not just about sports but news in general. I believe there will be gap or lapse in coverage at first but the advertising dollars will always follow the flow of eyeballs.
And if the newspapers go out of business that doesn't mean the professionals that have the relationships and know how to develop a story are going to disappear. They will most likely find a new home on some of these blogs/websites, and their knowledge base will simply be communicated in a new forum, and for all the 20 somethings out there this will be the desired format anyway, it will just take time.”

“With Steven Wells here to tell us about the juggernaut known as the Guatemalan national baseball team, why do we even need the Inquirer or DN? We truly have the best, most knowledgeable writer right here in our midst. Don't you see that?”

“with Zolecki (sp) moving from the Inq to MLB.com it just further supports my previous comment. He is now the Philly beat writer for MLB.com (his description on 950 am today) he doesn't have to move or change his life-style (his comments) in anyway he just now takes his knowledge base to the new medium. And by doing it first he will be the senior man on staff in a few years when all the younger journalist look to the .com's as the first choice for employment. Smart move Todd!”

Newspapers Are Not Toilet Roll Manufacturers
By Steven Wells

They’re not McDonald’s. They’re not “businesses.” Oh, sure, they’ve got to make payroll. But they are not and cannot be run as out-and-out cash cows for the greedy and the idle.

Philly isn’t the only town with dying daily newspapers
By Joel

Add San Francisco to the list. And let me preface my following remark with this statement: I make my living from the web, but I’m no web triumphalist. Until news organizations start generating enough money from web operations to support a reasonably sized newsroom, I don’t see how I could be. Yes, the audience is [...]

So your local newspapers have gone bankrupt…
By Joel

The news is here. Jim MacMillan does a roundup here. And it’s probably worth re-reading Steve Volk’s Phillymag article about how we got to this point. There’s going to be a great deal of temptation, today and in coming days, to mock the hubris of Brian Tierney in all of this. And that’s not entirely unwarranted. [...]

By Larry Atkins
