Cleveland Pros Get Glimpse of 'Newspaper of The Future'

From the March Issue of SPJ Report


CLEVELAND – Cyber-journalism expert Roger F. Fidler discussed “the newspaper of the future” during a networking event on Jan. 31 at the offices of PR Newswire.

The event, co-sponsored by PR Newswire and the Cleveland Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, was one in a continuing series called “Two Hours of Good Talk.”

PR Newswire staff also were available to explain their high-tech services to interested journalists.

Fidler, a professor of journalism and mass communication at Kent State University, heads the Institute for CyberInformation. He previously worked in the newspaper business for more than 34 years (including 21 years with Knight-Ridder) as a journalist, designer, technologist and executive.

He has been involved in new media development since 1979, and in 1981 began developing the idea of using a lightweight, flat-panel reader device, called a tablet, to display newspapers, magazines, books and other electronic documents. Fidler has transformed an entire issue of Crain’s Cleveland Business into an electronic version suitable for reading on tablets.
