The old media is taking a beating. First, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer ceased its print operation, then the Christian Science Monitor followed suit, and now, in a final blow, the Wallpaper has announced it will merge with the Wallingford eNews:
A few members [of the Wallingford Community Council] still request the Wallpaper by mail, but most find it in their email inbox, typically along with the Wallingford Enews. Why two different, often overlapping publications for Wallingford news? There doesn’t seem to be justification for the extra time and expense. So, the WCC is planning to submit regular articles to the Enews rather than creating this separate publication. Please let us know if you have any concerns about this plan.
The Wallpaper, for those who didn’t know, was the media organ of the Wallingford Community Council (see our Three Legged Stool post for info on what they do). We admit with some embarrassment that we didn’t actually know it existed until it was brought to our attention that it would be ceasing to exist. Ah, the irony.
If you’d like to sign-up for the Wallingford eNews, e-mail WNO@wallingford.org. It is a 7 – 8 page document that is e-mailed monthly. Wallyhood often uses it as a source for our stories.
