And Here I Thought Roanoke Had a Newspaper ...

The Newseum in Washington (above), a new museum about the press, has a marvelous little Web-based interactive gizmo that'll give you a look at newspapers all over the world. Take a look here and click on a city, any city--except maybe Roanoke--and you get a newspaper.

It appears Roanoke has no daily, weekly or otherwise newspaper. That was sudden.

UPDATE (May 22, 8 a.m.): According to an observant reader, the local daily is now part of the interactivity. Somebody must be reading this blog, I'd say. Heh, heh, heh ...


  1. The Times appears today!

  3. Hi, Dan - Sometimes the fronts don't get sent properly through to the Newseum, and so it appears as though there's no newspaper on that particular day.
