What’s black and white and read all over? The answer used to be newspapers. Cable TV and the Internet have changed that. All over the country, newspapers are facing tough times. The Canton Repository is for sale. The Beacon Journal in Akron has been pared to the bone by layoffs and buyouts. Ohio’s largest newspaper, The Plain Dealer, just got smaller. The newsroom is losing 64 people to buyouts. We’ll talk about what editors are doing to keep readers and get new ones. We’ll consider the future of newspapers tomorrow morning on The Sound of Ideas. And two of the biggest football games of the year are coming up this weekend when Ohio State and Michigan stage their annual battle of November and the Browns play the hated Steelers. We’ll talk to a man who’s experienced both rivalries, Browns great Dick Schafrath.
