On today’s show:
Internationally acclaimed photographer and Detroit resident Kenny Karpov joins us to talk about his upcoming photo exhibit, “Despite It All, We Never Learn.”
The photos take you on a journey with Karpov on a refugee boat in the Mediterranean. It’s quite the story, and the opening event is at M Contemporary Gallery in Ferndale. More info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1422062574620647/
Also, Sven – a former print journalist – and Jer talk about the news that apparently three reporters and a photographer are going to be laid off at the Detroit Free Press, ahead of a corporate mega-merger that will see local journalists lose their jobs across the country.
This isn’t the first – cuts have been going on for more than a decade – and it won’t be the last. So what could stop the death spiral of major paper local news? We discuss and we’d love to hear your feedback about what you’re looking for in local news.
