Maine Media Women hosts journalists Feb. 1
Damariscotta — Keeping Print Alive will be the theme for a panel of three Maine journalists during the Saturday morning, Feb. 1, meeting of Maine Media Women. Among the topics up for discussion are the impact of electronic access on newspaper circulation, revenue and employment; how online and free newspapers sustain themselves; and how the panelists view the future of print vs. online news.
Participating on the panel will be Sherwood Olin, editor of the Lincoln County News; Patricia McCarthy, editor of the weekly Cape Courier; and Gina Hamilton, editor of the New Maine Times (online), formerly with the Coastal Journal. Moderator will be MMW member Cynthia Carney, a senior web editor with L.L. Bean.
All MMW meetings are open to the public, and guests are always welcome. The February meeting will be held at the Mobius Center on Business Route 1, beginning at 9:15 a.m. with coffee and networking.
