Shoptalk - July 5
Keokuk, IA – The panelists talk about an FCC report that concludes that there is a shortage of in-depth, local journalism.
The report says that is the case despite the abundance of news outlets in today's multimedia world.
The panelists see examples of this in their own day-to-day reporting.
They say one reason could be linked to financial difficulties facing radio, TV, and print.
The panelists also point to the fact that there are some people who do not want any local news.
