What is your news site doing with reader comments these days?
“Instead of focusing on one very small geographic area, that same reporter may look for commonalities and trends across multiple areas.”
“We saw opportunity in Rhode Island where quite honestly great newspapers like the Providence Journal were seeing significant cuts and that market is particularly engaged in news.”
The Globe is the latest paper trying to “once and for all break the stubborn rhythms of a print operation, allowing us to unabashedly pursue digital subscriptions.”
