Recently one of our faculty members, Sarah Cavanah, did an interview about her dissertation on newspaperownership.com. Along with this interview, Sarah also met with Penny Abernathy, who runs the spotlight projects on newspaperownership.com, at the Withum Symposium hosted by the North Dakota Newspaper Association this fall.
Here is an excerpt from the interview: “My first “journalism” job was as an assistant everything at the weekly paper in my Missouri hometown, The Marceline Press. I started as a sophomore in high school and worked my way through high school. As a result, I’ve always been interested in how news is consumed in rural communities and what affect it has on decision-making at the very local level.”
