Regional and Town Newspapers Surviving Well

As Coy Paper has reported in recent past releases that the big daily newspapers are losing circulation and advertising revenue. The New York Times, today, published an article outlining decreases in circulation for the countries national and large metropolitan papers; confirming over a 10% drop this year. However, the story is not so grim for community and small town newspapers. Many of the small papers actually grew. Although the internet has cannibalized much of this media, the small town papers are very focused on local issues, local events, nearby movies and restaurants, etc. These writers live, eat, and ‘play’ in the community.
