“Leadership is about connecting a community’s history with present reality and then adapting so that a community can move into the future successfully.”
So says Penelope Muse Abernathy, author of Saving Community Journalism: The Path to Profitability. In a December 2017 interview for the Ryerson Review of Journalism with Zoe Melnyk, when asked how local newspapers should deal with the generation gap, Abernathy said “it is not just a matter of making the content relevant to [the readers], but also how you deliver it to them in a manner that they’ll most likely read it. When you look for people who subscribe to print only, they are 60 years old and older. If you look at people who read both the print edition and online, it drops down to around 45. If you look at people who read the paper only online, it’s 35 years old and under.”
