About Me

  • I've spent more than 25 years at the intersection of traditional and digital journalism. I've helped to invent ways to read and interact with the news and advertising on computer screens and iPads, and before that, I wrote news stories on typewriters and six-ply paper. I co-founded WashingtonPost.com and hyperlocal pioneers Backfence.com and GrowthSpur; served as editor of Philly.com; taught media entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland; and have done product-development and strategy consulting for all sorts of media and Internet companies and startups.

Seven different companies own the top seven papers - not bad, but with Tribune/Zell holding three of the top ten, I start to worry about private ownership.

I'd love to see an ABC list of the top 10 papers by percentage of circulation increase -- my bet is that these big fellas all drop off, and you find small papers moving ahead in certain parts of the country.
