Five Answers with Jonah Goodhart, Moat

By SEAN O'LEARY
January 19, 2015

1) How do you read the newspaper – print, online and/or mobile?

I read newspapers online and on my mobile phone. I am getting to the point where I don’t differentiate between “online” and “mobile”. If I’m at my desk when I am reading then it is on my computer and when I’m on the move, it’s mobile. I am finding that the silo between desktop and mobile (for me personally) is going away.

Five Answers with Amy Webb, Webbmedia Group

1) How do you read the newspaper – print, online and/or mobile?

I wouldn't say that I read any particular newspaper at all. Instead, I subscribe to a few different networks and services that curate content for me. I rely most heavily on an app called Nuzzel, which tracks which stories are being shared by people whose opinions I value most. Once a story has reached some level of critical mass (it changes depending on how busy I am) I see a push notification on my mobile. I also use the app to track other stories that are popular.

Five Answers with Susan Page, USA Today

By SEAN O'LEARY
January 6, 2015

1) How do you read the newspaper – print, online and/or mobile?

All of the above. My husband, a columnist for The Dallas Morning News, and I get four print editions delivered to our doorstep at home every morning – USA TODAY (of course), The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. They usually arrive by 4:30 AM, an impressive performance by an old-style delivery system. Reading the print editions over coffee in the early morning is one of life’s pleasures, in my view.

1) How do you read the newspaper – print, online and/or mobile?

All three – I consume news in every format, every chance I get. I read online and get mobile news alerts from my favorite newspapers, but I still enjoy the printed paper – especially for local news. I have a great weekly paper, The Weston Forum. I listen to news on the radio when I am in the car, too. I am a news junkie!
