Prof. Gissler (above) bemoans realities of Fourth Estate struggle to survive.

From the Boston Globe to the Chicago Tribune to the Seattle Post Intelligencer to the Rocky Mountain News to the Christian Science Monitor it seems the entire industry is teetering on extinction.

That’s why – if you have even the slight- est interest print journalism – you won’t want to miss today’s special edition of SAJA.

Joining host Sree Sreenivasan at 4:30 p.m. ET will be Columbia Journalism School Prof. Sig Gissler, who has been administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes since 2002.

A former editor himself – of the Milwaukee Journal – and Pulitzer Prize winner, Prof. Gissler will discuss the rapidly changing newspaper landscape, and its potential negative impacts on democracy.
