Last April Dennis Robaugh was talking to me about innovation in the newspaper industry, the need for which was italicized by the reason I'd called him — he'd just been laid off as managing editor of the Southtown Star.
What's going on out there that's interesting? I'd wondered. Robaugh emailed me today with an answer. It's a blog post by social media strategist Woody Lewis, "10 Ways Newspapers Are Using Social Media to Save the Industry." Lewis wrote it several months ago, but it was new to Robaugh and I hadn't seen it either.
If there's anything in Lewis's survey that makes you feel a little more hopeful, happy Thanksgiving.
