AJR: Can changes at a newspaper unify a city?

The website of the American Journalism Review, one of the nation’s two preeminent magazines about the journalism business, today published an article titled “How Changes at a Newspaper are Unifying a City.”

The article profiles New Orleans civic activist Anne Milling, restaurateur Ralph Brennan and Times-Picayune alumna Rebecca Theim about the community’s and staff’s reactions of the newspaper’s owner, Advance Publications, to cut the daily publication of the paper to thrice weekly, slash the staff by one-third and focus resources on NOLA.com, the newspaper’s much-criticized website.
