“I think Sunday print will be here for a long time.”
That remark, made by Andrea Hogben, president of the Northeast Ohio Media Group, or NEOMG, the company that operates The Plain Dealer, the weekly Sun Newspapers and cleveland.com, needs some context.
It wasn’t said to announce the coming of a one-day-a-week newspaper anytime soon.
Rather, her reference to the traditional mainstay of news organizations was her way of emphasizing the unique breadth and depth of reporting that the Sunday newspaper represents. It was made during an hour long conversation in her second-floor office at 1801 Superior Ave. that included Chris Quinn, NEOMG’s vice president of content, about the future of the news organization she leads.
But Hogben did say Sunday. Not Wednesday or Friday, but Sunday. And it may, someday, come to pass.
