EP Times at Kinley’s/Press Club meeting Saturday morning

From the Inbox:


EL PASO – Experts have heralded the death of the newspaper for decades, and never has it looked more real than now. Three major newspapers serving large urban centers have shut down this year alone. Revenue for most of the papers still in operation is down and has lead to the loss of tens of thousands of journalism jobs in the United States.

Are revenue losses and shifts in circulation affecting the El Paso Times, the city’s oldest daily newspaper? What is the new leadership at the paper doing to improve its product and attract more readers?

Join the El Paso Press Club for a frank conversation about the future of the Times and its role as one of the city’s watchdog. Our guests will be Times Publisher Ray Stafford and Editor Chris V. Lopez.

The event starts at 10:30 a.m. at Kinley’s House Coffee & Tea, 2231 N. Mesa.

Stafford and Lopez will address the future of the Times and the state of the newspaper industry. Both will be available to answer questions about the paper’s practices, its projects and other journalism-related topics.

Members of the media and the general public are invited to attend the event and encouraged to ask questions of the panelists
