15 years ago newspapers were just worried about competition from other newspapers

This 1993 promotional video explains how the Los Angeles Times Valley Edition was put together each day. And yes, that's me in there, a little younger, and sporting a moustache....

  1. Great video for perspective. Somewhat ironic that the "budget" meetings were about budgeting space and not money.

    Also interesting that 16 years ago newspapers were comparing themselves to television as a source for more in depth information. Amazing to think how much more in depth you can go online with no page count limits and the addition of video and other media.

    What year would you say the Internet really started eating into the market share of newspapers?
