PA Live! Blog of the Week: Independent NEPA

NEPA Blogs will be presenting the "Blog of the Week" on WBRE's PA Live! every Tuesday. PA Live! airs weekday afternoons on WBRE from 4:00 to 5:00.

Our PA Live! Blog of the Week this week is Independent NEPA  (http://independentnepa.com/component/content/frontpage).

"Print is dead," Harold Ramis's character announced in an oddly jarring and out-of-place line in 1984's Ghostbusters. Thirty years later, print is still with us. (Harold Ramis, sadly, is not; he passed away a few months ago.) In many cases, print survives by keeping one foot in the online world, creating a web presence that complements and is complemented by its print counterpart.

Independent NEPA is Northeastern Pennsylvania's independent magazine, available free of charge at many locations. You may have picked up a copy in a waiting room somewhere, or sought out a copy featuring people or events in NEPA that are important to you. 
Independent NEPA is the online counterpart to the magazine, presenting - in blog form - some of the content contained in the magazine. It's an excellent way of referencing information from past editions, or finding out about articles in the current edition and getting an incentive to seek out a hard copy.  (Coincidentally, the top article as I write this is a piece called "Print is not dead.")

If you'd like to see a great, locally-produced, independent magazine featuring articles by and about folks from Northeastern Pennsylvania, pick up a copy of Independent PA. If you'd like to see what this magazine is all about, check out their blog, Independent NEPA.
