  • Dan Kennedy Reimagines Journalism in ‘The Wired City’

    WGBH - 06/25/2013

    As media critic Dan Kennedy has watched newspapers fold over the last decade, he’s been trying to figure out what might successfully replace them. In his new book, The Wired City, he proposes an answer: independent, online local news sites like the New Haven Independent.

    Kennedy, who teaches journalism at Northeastern University, doesn’t think newspapers will disappear soon but notes that some states are losing them faster than others. Take Connecticut, where the major papers have gone bankrupt in recent years.

    “As a result, we’ve seen the New Haven Independent and a number of other online projects kind of rise up to do some of what the newspapers used to do,” Kennedy told Emily Rooney on Greater Boston.
