National newspaper week, Oct. 2-8, is a time to celebrate the unique role newspapers play in our society and dispel the myth that they are going away.
It may be difficult for some to see through the fog of recession and digital disruption, but if you look closely you’ll see that newspapers remain healthy.
Despite the doomsayers, newspapers are actually growing readership as we find new ways to reach consumers.
While overall revenues are down, so are expenses and most newspapers remain profitable.
