"Radio Boston," an hour-long weekly program on WBUR (90.9), will devote its show this Friday to the future of the newspaper business, pegged to ongoing downsizing at the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald. The show is broadcast at 1 p.m. and repeated on Saturday at 1 p.m., but you'll probably rather listen on the show's Web site.
Some of you may be looking for an extra-credit assignment. Here's one that I think would work well. Listen to "Radio Boston" and write a 500-word post for your blog. In addition to the broadcast, bring in at least two other sources of relevant information — with links, of course. If you choose to do this, please do it before class on Monday.
It looks like I'm going to be one of the participants, but don't let that sway you. In fact, when you write your blog post, I'd much prefer if you emphasize the other panelists.
