St. Louis Journalism Review to continue critiquing, in print
By Matt Sepic, KWMU
St. Louis – The St. Louis Journalism Review will continue to publish in its current form for the foreseeable future.
Webster University owns and subsidizes the Journal, and university officials had considered doing only an online version to avoid printing costs.
But editor Ed Bishop said a new donor will help fund the publication, though he can't say who or how much.
"Someone has come forward with some money, and we believe that we will be able to raise even more money, and will continue to publish a print version of the St. Louis Journalism Review," Bishop said.
Bishop said he'll be able to release more information once the deal is official in a few weeks.
The Review has been critiquing St. Louis media for more than 35 years. It's the only local publication of its kind in the country.
