Our local newspaper--the Lansing (MI) State Journal--seems to be in a death spiral. We are the State Capital city of Michigan and this Gannett newspaper kinda sorta covers the news these days.
Is this announcement in today's edition an indicator of it continued march towards extinction:
Sports will begin on the back page of the Local/State section rather than as a stand-along section.And then there's a description of how they will cover sports. Keep in mind that Michigan State University is just down the road with Big Ten basketball and football.
How many people will stop buying the paper because of the reduced sports coverage?
When will our paper become little more than a shopper filled with ads and canned news releases?
