Editors to meet with Ypsi residents at brewery

In response to the recent announcement the Ann Arbor News will close in July, the Ypsilanti Citizen invites community members to discuss the future of journalism and news with its editors.

The Citizen Community Collaboration will be held from 5 – 9 p.m. Saturday April, 4 at the Corner Brewery, located at 720 Norris St. Those who attend will be given the opportunity to visit with Citizen editors Christine Laughren, Dan DuChene and Andrew Cipolla.

“The journalism field is morphing into unknown territory,” Laughren said. “Closings, such as the Ann Arbor News, carry with them a lot of anxieties especially for those who are use to reading the newspaper all the time.”

On Saturday, the editors of the Citizen hope to quell some of these anxieties, answer questions and be a resource to the community. The event carries no specific agenda and is designed to be nothing more then an informal meet and greet.

“We want to make ourselves available to the community and share how the Citizen itself has been doing,” DuChene said.

The event also marks the beginning of the Citizen's sixth month of operation.

The Ypsilanti Citizen has been in operation since November and DuChene said, “we've had steady and positive growth over the past five months.”
