What’s it like to work at a local newspaper in 2020? The Tow Center has launched a new survey to find out: http://bit.ly/Tow2020
Please note: Survey period ends Saturday, September 5 at 11:59 p.m.
Damian Radcliffe, 2019 Montgomery Symposium presenter, asks for your help
My name is Damian Radcliffe and I am a Professor of Journalism at the University of Oregon. In collaboration with the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University, I recently launched a new survey to better understand life at local newspapers in 2020.
We hope that you can spare 8-12 minutes to share your insights on the impact of COVID-19, digital journalism and the future of local news.
If you work for a newspaper with a print circulation of 50,000 or less, please take a few minutes to contribute, and encourage others to participate.
You can access the survey at http://bit.ly/Tow2020
We know that everyone is especially busy right now, but your confidential and anonymous responses will help us understand changes that are shaping local journalism.
This survey builds on the “Local News in a Digital World” research project produced in 2016–17, and our hope is that the results of this new study can help better inform industry decision-making.
Should you have any questions about the survey, then please do not hesitate to contact me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to sharing the findings of this research later this year.
