Today on SP Radio: The future of print media?

Today on Smile Politely Radio, we will be joined by Don Elmore, editor for the former C-U alt/weekly The Paper. We will talk about the current media landscape in town, with a particular emphasis on the Illini Media Company and their recent financial issues. What makes IMC’s situation unique and what about it is representative of the larger print media landscape?

We will also talk about the current evolution of print media and what the viable solutions are moving forward. We will also discuss whether a for-profit model can still work.

Among other activities, Don is currently one of the owners of Jane Addams Bookstore in downtown Champaign.
