CMAT 102

Prof. Jeremy Cox

a newspaper s look and content are factors of
A newspaper’s look and content are factors of...
  • The makeup of its readership and what they care about
  • The makeup of its advertising base
  • How much money it makes
  • Who owns it, the structure of the ownership and values of the ownership
  • How often it comes out (i.e. daily, weekly, etc.)
  • Its relationship with new media
  • Its competition
readership
Readership
  • The target audience of the newspaper.
  • Usually determined by the distribution area. How far the paper is delivered to doorsteps and store shelves.
  • Generally speaking, there are three types of newspapers: local, regional and national.
  • Regional papers are cutting back. It costs lots of money in gas and manpower to deliver to far-flung communities, so many are reeling in where they distribute.
    • In 2009, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution stopped delivering to seven Georgia counties and cutting full-time news staff from 323 to 230.
    • From 50 counties (Georgia has 67), it now delivers to fewer than two dozen
