State of the News Media: The Written Word

With sinking ad revenues and dwindling staff at the daily newspapers (along with the surge in e-journalism) what has become of the role of print journalists as society's watchdogs? Dan Boylan moderates a panel of key players in Hawaii's print and e-journalism industry. Contributing editor Howard Dicus puts things in an economic perspective with his Everybody's Business reports.

Panelists include: MARK PLATTE- Editor, Honolulu Advertiser; JIM KELLY - Editor, Pacific Business News; GERALD KATO - Professor of Journalism at the University of Hawaii; RYAN OZAWA - Digital Journalist. This conversation was recorded on September 10, 2009 in the PBS Hawaii studio.
