Newspapers: From Newsies and Beyond


11 am

This week people lined up around the block to get their copy of the Columbus Dispatch. That itself could be a headline: Many People Buy Newspaper! They wanted physical evidence of OSU's win over Oregon, of course, but readership has dropped so low in recent years, newspapers are being forced out of circulation. This hour we'll discuss whether the industry can adapt.


  • Benjamin J. Marrison, editor of The Columbus Dispatch
  • Rick Edmonds, media business analyst for The Poynter Institute
  • Steve Blanchard, actor playing Joseph Pulitzer in Newsies
  • Jacob Kemp, actor playing Davey in Newsies
