Interesting article on the condition/fate of Maine newspapers

This article goes into detail on the declining fortunes of Maine’s newspapers (as with all newspapers), but also the fascinating mixed bag of the growing consolidated ownership of them under one man — Reade Brower of Rockland. The dangers of consolidated ownership vs the protection offered by the fact that it is one local person as opposed to the venture-capital corporations that are devouring papers elsewhere.
Serious Concerns and a Glimmer of Hope There’s no state in the country where one person controls as many newspapers as Reade Brower does in Maine, and many are watching to see how this situation unfolds. by Patricia McCarthy PineTree Watch June, 2018
