Changes in the media industry, from chain ownership and Wall Street pressures, are transforming daily newspapers. Will newspapers as we know them today survive? Can the Internet replace daily newspapers, both journalistically and commercially? Are different ownership models the way to go? How will the need for balanced, consistent coverage of local issues be met in Baltimore and elsewhere? Moderator Sheilah Kast, host of WYPR-FM's "Maryland Morning" will lead a discussion with panelists Michael Hill, a reporter at The Baltimore Sun; Thomas Kunkel, dean of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland; and Howard Weaver, vice president of news at The McClatchy Co. Presented by the Institute for Policy Studies' Press and Public Policy Seminar, the event is free and open to the public.
