Should we still call it a newspaper?



It is news, it is owned by newspaper companies, but it is not likely to be printed on paper.


I walk my neighborhood in the AM. I don't see newspapers on driveways.


I have not held a newspaper in years and have not subscribed in about 7 years.


I was surprised last month to learn that many newspapers print only two times per week including the Tampa Bay Times (formerly the St. Petersburg Times until they purchased the Tampa Tribune).


Today I just learned, from Axios Tampa Bay, that After 60 years the Tampa Bay Times will stop its presses in St. Pete and move to Lakeland.


Good news for Lakeland but I think about 150 people in St Pete will lose their jobs.
