The Burlington Free Press just made another round of cuts and the paper’s parent company, Gannett, is in the midst of 10-percent across-the-board layoffs at its 85 papers.

VPR’s Jane Lindholm discusses the changing face of print journalism with Saint Michael’s College journalism professor David Mindich.
