The Future of the Newspaper

Breaking news
KPU Richmond
Room 2170

Description:

“The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated,” may be a misquote attributed to American author Mark Twain. However, it’s an entirely accurate description of the state of local newspapers.

There has been much hand-wringing about the death of print journalism, and while newspapers have faced some formidable challengers – radio, television, the internet – it’s still kicking, and will do so for some time yet.

Eve Edmonds, editor of the Richmond News, will look at how local newspapers have adapted to the rapidly changing media landscape and further explore what lies ahead in a world where social media platforms such as Facebook and YouTube have become dominant purveyors of news.

Eve Edmonds has worked in journalism for 30 years, covering everything from municipal politics, to court and crime, to arts and entertainment. She has a

Master’s degree in Journalism from Carleton University. Along with editing the Richmond News, Edmonds writes a weekly column exploring local issues as well as the role of community news.
