S3E5-Rural Media

Media industry is in trouble. For a long time now it has been shedding jobs and converging into ever larger corporate entities where profits outweigh any residual sense of responsibility to small communities for whom a local paper is often a necessity. Are there solutions? In this episode we will bring you interviews with journalists working a community owned paper in Blyth, Ontario and a co-op station in Nelson, BC as well as a conversation with two researchers from the Caribbean islands of Curaçao and Aruba studying journalism practices in small island settings.
