On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
The Gazette newspaper has been covering hyper-local news in Montgomery County since 1959, with as many as 13 different editions at one point. In 1993, The Washington Post bought The Gazette and after Jeff Bezos bought the Post, in 2013, the weekly Gazette was run by Post Community Media. Last week, the publisher shut down the paper that’s covered everything from planning debates to prep sports for decades. We examine the economics of weekly papers and the future of hyper-local news coverage in our region.
