This is too bad but a reflection of today's media. Our business is 50 mi. from Des Moines. The daily sports section of the DMR doesn't have anything that happened after about 8 PM the previous day. Given a lot of sports events are evening, a lot of our sports section is 2 days behind. In addition, the quantity of sports info printed is about half to 2/3 of say 2-3 yrs. ago. Frankly, I wouldn't want to be a stock holder in the DMR or parent company. While small town newspapers can likely survive by filling a niche, medium to large papers like the DMR appear to have a rough road ahead.
