Amanda and Alex finish the year in review wrap up with a look back at a few more industries and a look forward at the issues to watch in 2019. We close with our “favorites” of 2018 and a big announcement about the show.
It's an "extra" episode in which we put the five local media interviews in conversation to see what we can take away on this complicated subject. (Sorry about the slow production of late)
Alex and Amanda talk with Evan Smith, CEO of The Texas Tribune, a digital-only, not-for-profit news organization that operates in Texas. Evan joins us to discuss what he's learned about the opportunities and challenges for local, digital journalism, and be sure to note his definition of journalism around the 16 minute mark.
