Since 2005, more than 2,000 newspapers have closed in the United States, and as of 2020, nearly 4 million Americans live in a county without a newspaper. The loss of a newspaper can be a crisis for the news ecosystem within a community as few alternatives exist to replace them. In our upcoming webinar, hear from Dr. Jessica Mahone on how news ecosystems and news deserts are assessed, who lives in news deserts, and the significance of increasing news deserts in the U.S.
