Newspapers in Michigan are declining. But, one newspaper editor in Ann Arbor isn’t worried.
Lucy Tobier is the editor of The Murray Ave. Times, a monthly newspaper. When Tobier started producing the paper, she was eight years old. Now, she’s ten.
At eight years old, she began interviewing interesting people who lived on her street. At that point, the papers she produced were half a page long. Now they range from 8-10 pages per issue.
When she begins an issue, she tries to figure out which houses on her street have “the most interesting news right now.”
