“The News is Everyone’s” offers a unique first-person account of news gathering, editorial, and community service activities at The Cleveland Press in Spring 1977, five years before the newspaper ceased publication. Writer Edward Wolf, an intern at the newspaper at the time, offers a lively account of shoe-leather reporting, earnest community outreach, and editorial conferences in the newsroom led by editor-in-chief Tom Boardman. The journal captures a news organization poised on the brink of the computer revolution in a city struggling to desegregate its schools and manage its public utilities through a tumultuous era.
