An Oklahoma Community Paper Closes

Terry Clark, journalism professor at the University of Central Oklahoma and director of the Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame, laments the closing of The North Central Reporter. He writes that it was a model of what community journalism ought to be. The paper closed because the publisher wanted to move on and do other things, she no longer wanted to be, as her daughter put it, The North Central Reporter. One thing that community journalism undeniably needs is passionate people willing to put their all into it. And that can be a high cost of doing business.
