A retired newspaper exec looks to give back to the community newspapers that raised him with an ear to the ground for change
Walter B. “Walt” Potter Jr. is a retired newspaper executive who has committed significant time and resources to the cause of community newspapers. Recently he completed a “listening tour” of Missouri weekly newspapers, hearing out their many challenges and opportunities in the digital age. You can read a blog of Potter’s visits here.
Recently King Features Weekly caught up with Walt to ask him where his interest in community newspapers comes from and what he’s heard and done so far.
