SB 30 Episode 27: Talking Memphis Magazine & The Flyer with Anna Traverse, CEO of Contemporary Media

On this week’s show, from WYPL’s FM 89.3, host Mark Fleischer sat down with Anna Traverse, new CEO of Contemporary Media, Inc. to discuss the ever-shifting landscape of today’s print media and local journalism.

Already in her short tenure she has had to deal with shifts in media advertising and reading habits, to the scheduled end of free publication distribution by Kroger Inc. in our local Kroger stores, and to a controversial Memphis Magazine cover. During the interview, Anna spoke candidly about the aftermath of September’s controversial cover and how it points to the need for all of us in local media to strive to best reflect the faces and culture that is Memphis.
