Veteran Journalist on Decline of Printed Media

WestportNow.com Image
Stephen B. Shepard, former editor-in-chief of Business Week and founding dean of the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Journalism, today addressed a Westport Public Library audience about his memoir, “Deadlines and Disruption: The Turbulent Path From Print to Digital,” chronicling his almost 50 years in news,  20 of them with Business Week. “It has been a period of transition,” he said. “Before the readers could be called, ‘the audience,’ but now they can ‘talk back’ via Facebook and other sites.”  Shepard added: “At first I was defensive, but came to see the value of interactive form of storytelling.” He lamented the “gradual decline” of printed media and said in order to survive, newspapers and local websites will become “platforms for their community.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Phyllis Groner for WestportNow.com
