Student newspapers are filling a reporting void as local papers disappear. 

Student newspapers are filling a reporting void as local papers disappear. From Michigan to Arizona, more than 2,000 newspapers have closed or merged, leaving more than 1,300 communities without any local news coverage. Student journalists have stepped in, with young reporters covering everything from politics to the #MeToo movement. But one major issue they face is the temporary nature of these students’ jobs, as they move on after graduation. (NYT)
