A paper fighting for survival
To survive, a series of austerity waves splashed our small newsroom and over the past months it has affected operations.
Until one day, the publisher announced retrenchment or downsizing or whatever.
We will be forced to squeeze limited resources, go the extra mile, bid goodbye to some close colleagues just to stay alive.
This is the best time to do “magic” from little resources to big dreams.
“We are determined not to close shop,” the publisher told each of the employees “but we are ready to tighten the belt even tighter.”
Wherever this may lead, we hope it won’t compromise the community newspaper’s resolve to report on Bukidnon.
While there was a prospect buyer, until negotiations are “done deal” we continue to battle for survival of Bukidnon’s oldest-running newspaper.
Of course we are also excited about what new doors will open for the Central Mindanao Newswatch family.
We know this purge will only leave us on better grounds!
