Ann Arbor Area Community News
In the Sunday edition of the Ann Arbor News, editor Ed Petykiewicz explains some changes afoot at the News:
Mr. Petykiewicz explains that the News is trying this strategy as the News (like many other newspapers across the country) transitions from a “once-a-day publication cycle” printed paper into “an around-the-clock information company” with both a print and online presence.
In addition, Mr. Petykiewicz notes that
The News is looking to reduce its costs with “voluntary buyouts in some areas, some consolidation and fewer pages.”
What does the future look like for the News? According to Mr. Perykiwicz, while the News “will have fewer pages . . . the goal is to remain relevant and vital to our readers and to the communities we serve.”
To that end, the Ann Arbor News is seeking feedback from citizens re: what “types of local news you value and what additional local stories you’d like to see in your newspaper.”
Since Arbor Update is intended as a place for community discussion, I thought this would be a good place for readers to post their feedback to the News. I will email Mr. Petykiewicz and invite him to read the comments written here.
If you would like to contact Mr. Petykiewicz directly with your comments, you can write him at The Ann Arbor News, 240 East Huron St., Ann Arbor, MI 48106 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
