Local Media: A Conversation with Neil Chase, Bay Area News Group

Alex and Amanda talk with Neil Chase, Executive Editor of the Bay Area News Group. He is a veteran journalist and marketer with deep experience in print and digital news, who got his start at the San Francisco Examiner, and has been as a professor at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism and held top spots at the business news site MarketWatch.com, The New York Times and Federated Media Publishing. 

Neil gives us a nuanced look at the role of ownership and types of local--it might not be about who owns you, but their approach to the business.
