Source one: Susan Patterson Plank, Vice President of Marketing & Digital Development and General Manager of the Iowa City Press-Citizen at The Des Moines Register. She would be a good source because of her job position at the Iowa City Press-Citizen. She should be very knowledgeable on how a similar situation would affect Iowa City. I located her online by going to iowapresscitizen.com and looking up the Press-Citizen’s history and current state. She is listed as the General Manager as of 2008.
Source two: Jane Singer, Associate Professor at the University of Iowa. She would be a good source because of her background and knowledge in how digital journalism has affected print-press. She “was Prodigy’s first news manager, in charge of one of the first around-the-clock news products ever to be delivered to people’s homes through a computer (UIowa).” I located her online by going to the University of Iowa’s website and then going to the Journalism Department’s website.
