Making the news: who will fill the gap in rural coverage?
Play • 42 min

Changes to news media are hitting rural Canada hard. From community papers closing or amalgamating to digital gaps limiting online solutions, access to stories about what's going on in rural communities is becoming increasingly difficult. This week we talk with Ryerson Journalism Professor April Lindgren about how we got here and what we can do about it. 

New to the pod? Every week Helen Murphy, a rural newspaper editor and entrepreneur, invites guests to share fresh thinking, success stories and lessons learned. Be sure to subscribe to stay up-to-date on all things rural innovation! Thanks for listening!
