The Death of the Inquirer | What Can Newspapers Do To Keep Their Sinking Ships Afloat?

The Dom Giordano Program
Monday, September 16th
Today, Dom Giordano began his program by talking about a new conservative news source coming to Philadelphia, called Broad and Liberty. Dom reveals the new newspaper, and asks listeners where they get their news from, besides WPHT, of course. This conversation turns into a conversation about the bleak state of newspaper news, and Dan was able to find a July Philadelphia Magazine article, which notes that, “As of May 7th, the circulation of the daily Inquirer, which once stood at 373,892 copies in 2002, was down to 101,818. Sunday circulation has dropped over that same period from 747,969 in 2002 down to 201,024. The circulation of the Daily News has dwindled to 19,192. And behind its pay wall the former website had only 30,000 paid subscribers.” Dom is absolutely astounded to hear these numbers, and listeners call in to tell Dom why they believe the numbers have fallen so far, and offer up suggestions as to how the Inquirer can turn the ship around. Also, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo just banned flavored e-cigarettes and vaping products. Dom brings up a good point: why is it that liberals want to ban everything? Dom lists product after product that liberals have banned recently, and asks listeners to call in with other suggestions.
