The Anatomy Of A Newspaper & The View From Downstate

Would you like to know how newspapers view the news? What categories do they place the different kinds of news? Finally, how does a downstate publisher see the Greater Western New York Region? Click the link below to find out on this week’s episode of The State of Greater Western New York Report:

In the first half of today’s show, you’ll discover the difference between breaking news, spot news, regular news coverage, and feature reporting.

In the show’s second segment, George Fiala, publisher of the Red Hook Revue in Brooklyn, NY, tells us how his paper fits in his community. As he does this, he highlights the difference between the critical components of marketing in a densely populated area like New York City versus doing so in a relatively wide-open market as we see in the Greater Western New York Region. Finally, he shares his thoughts and perspective about our region and reveals what his readers probably think.
