We have been focusing on what to call the division. I agree with those who would vote to keep the title Newspaper. My belief is that when you discuss newspapers today you are talking about them in both print and broadcast forms. Certainly journalists today must be more versatile and be able to tell stories in multiple platforms.
I think we should take the path of Radio/Television. They kept their title but rewrote the description to make it clear their focus is online as well as broadcast. I think our focus should be to change the description of the division to make more clear it does not focus merely on the print component. Currently, there is just a brief mention of technology and the suggestion is how the industry is dealing with it.
