AAUW Speaker Series: Covering Local News in a Changing World


[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_2third_end]During his presentation McCright discusses the changes he has seen during his three decades in journalism, and offer some information on how the Addison Independent will both adjust and grow in the future — even in this coming year! “The way that a community newspaper covers the news is changing in this digital age,” says McCright, “but the role of the community newspaper continues to be the same as it has been for the last century or two: to help glue together the people and institutions in Addison County by showing what is going on.” John McCright oversees the gathering of news for the Independent, managing a staff that includes three full-time reporters, a photographer, an online editor, a copyeditor, and many outside contributors. He works closely with the publisher, production department, advertising staff, and front-office crew to make sure the news gets to the community.
