Join Steve Schewel, founder and former publisher of the Independent Weekly, for a conversation with Bob Ashley, editor of The Herald-Sun, on the newspaper’s 125th birthday. Founded in 1889 as The Durham Sun, the paper has evolved over time. Schewel and Ashley will talk about some of the characters that have peopled the newsroom, the challenges newspapers face in the 21st century and our continuing need for them.
