Gainesville Daily Register staff reporter Amanda Shireman has asked readers of this blog which newspaper they would choose if they lost their job and lost their home.
“It depends,” she wrote.
“If I had a child and had to go to college, I would choose the Gainesville Times.
It’s not that the Times is the best newspaper, but it’s a paper I’m loyal to and the Times has been a paper that has helped me in so many ways.”
Shireman, an African-American woman, was hired in the fall of 2013 as a reporter for the Gainesesville Register.
Shirley Storrs, editor of the Gainingsport Times, said she believes the newspaper has a good reputation in Gainesville and that the newspaper would be a good choice for a former reporter.
I am honored to have worked for the newspaper for 16 years, Storres said in an email to The Times’ local news team.
Gainesville has a strong history of journalism, Stomps said.
This newspaper has done great work in the past, and we look forward to continuing to do so, he said.
“Our staff will continue to work to provide quality news and information to Gainesville residents and visitors, and to be a part of the local community.”
The Gainesville Register will continue as the paper’s daily local news source, Storie said.
It will continue publishing stories on local events and issues in Gainesport and the surrounding communities.
Storrs said the newspaper is doing a lot of things to keep up with technology.
They are constantly updating the website with new stories, new graphics, new ways to interact with the readers, she said.
Storie said she hopes that the paper can provide a service to the community that has never been offered before.
