Pat Kiernan, the man who reads aloud on TV from New York-area newspapers (“In the Papers” on NY1) is now reading aloud online from a broader range of newspapers, reports the New York Times. Kiernan today launched patspapers.com, which offers a “carefully-edited summary of US newspaper headlines,” including an “In The Papers”-esque webcast (see below). Kiernan tells Gothamist that when it comes to newspapers, he “vastly prefer[s] print versions to the online experience” (though he’s presumably betting that you don’t — or don’t have the time to).
