End of an era viewed with optimism

Jim Memmott wrote an interesting piece about the changeover of what could be New York state’s, if not the country’s, smallest daily newspaper to a weekly publication.

Perhaps the most surprising details were (1) no editorial  job losses and (2) the journalists’ optimism. The Salamanca Press‘s managing editor, Kip Doyle, told Memmott, “”We were losing what we are supposed to be, a community paper.”

Memmott’s piece brings together the history of the 142-year-old paper with a look to the future. It’s a very nice read for newspaper junkies.
