Innovation Recommendation: OTM on Seattle’s New Media Landscape

If you missed On The Media this weekend, don’t miss its “The Inheritance of Loss” segment—in which Brooke Gladstone explores the results of a paper’s closure, overall, on a city. OTM, alas, had several cities to choose among for a profile of a lost paper’s effect…but it wound up profiling Seattle. Gladstone interviews a neighborhood blogger (from the popular West Seattle blog), alt-weekly staffers, online-only reporters (at the remaining, online-only Post-Intelligencer), and the editor of the Seattle Times, the P-I’s old rival, to paint a picture of Seattle’s new media landscape.

Well worth a listen.
