Author Roy Peter Clark joins the St. Pete 2.0 conversation as we examine news in St. Petersburg. With his work at the Tampa Bay Times and the Poynter Institute, Clark has observed and participated in the evolution of the news business. We run through the fragmentation of the news audience and the recent return to traditional news sources as expectations of quality rise. Clark explains the internet’s major impact on local identity as geographical boundaries dissolve. We explore the move away from the newspaper as the sole source of comprehensive news and how local news publications are working to figure out their place in the modern community newscape. We also discuss a couple of theories on how to address the problems of relevance, participation and objectivity.
