The next Lunch and Learn session in Canton Township will feature students from local WDSP 88.1 The Park radio session discussing efforts to fill a local news void.
Financial downturns have seen local newspapers close or become digital only, students said, forcing a decline in local news coverage. The local student-operated radio station is working to fill that void, and becoming the local media source for the community.
Students will speak at the 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Jan. 18 Lunch and Learn session about their efforts. The event is free, but pre-registration is requested to ensure adequate seating. The meeting will take place in the first floor board room of the Canton Administration Building, 1150 Canton Center Road..
Audience members should bring a lunch or something to nibble on during the presentation organizers advised.
