NPR One app potential is huge

poynter.org — Public radio and podcasts have taken on an increasing role in my life. I listen while running, cleaning, cooking, driving long distances or taking public transportation, mostly times when I can afford to multitask, but can't be looking at video or don't want the added work of reading text.

poynter.org — PetaPixel | Who Pays Photographers? "Who Pays Photographers?" is a Tumblr that takes anonymous submissions about who pays how much to photojournalists. On Wednesday, Gannon Burgett wrote about the page for PetaPixel.

Scripps and Journal Communications, announced last night, and their reorganization into separate print and broadcast companies came as a jaw-dropping surprise.
