The fact is that while very large newspapers have faced big challenges to their businesses, America’s thousands of community papers are as healthy as their communities.
NNA’s research in partnership with the University of Missouri R J Reynolds Institute reports that 83 percent of the people in towns with community newspapers say they rely on those newspapers as their principal source of news and information.
We print better-looking pages than ever because of advanced technologies. We can shoot video for our websites with as up-to-the minute precision as TV crews.
We put out tweets and posts and pin pictures to new social media sites. The Internet isn’t going to kill us. It’s giving us new tools to work better, faster and smarter.
People who say otherwise aren’t reading their community newspapers. They are missing the real news.
Established in 1885, the NNA represents 2,200 owners, publishers and editors of America’s community newspapers. Visit NNA at nnaweb.org.
