On this week’s show, we are joined by Don Elmore, editor of the former C-U alt/weekly The Paper and current owner of Jane Addams Bookshop. In addition, Jason Brown, our regular co-host, draws upon his experience working as a DJ for WPGU. Don and Jason talk with us about the current media landscape in town, with a particular emphasis on the Illini Media Company and their recent financial issues. What makes IMC’s situation unique and what about it is representative of the larger print media landscape? We also discuss the current evolution of print media and what the viable solutions are moving forward.
