Inside The Times, ep. 11: Paper cuts

October 9, 2018

It is time for a frank and rough discussion, listeners of this podcast and readers of The Times: The paper will be cutting production of its Monday and Tuesday print editions.

The crew talks with Charles Hill Morris Jr., owner of Metro Market Media — the Gainesville-based parent organization of The Times, Forsyth County News and Dawson County News — and its general manager, Norman Baggs.

If you want to know how we got here and what (we think) happens next, give us a listen. We also give a transparent look at what’s going on behind the scenes at The Times. The crew talks about the advent of Craigslist and social media, how tariffs and the cost of paper are affecting our community reporting, and how we’re using digital resources to keep serving our North Georgia communities.
