Episode 6: The Worst of Times

While readership and advertisers continued to shift away from print media, in the early months of 2011 Vue Weekly and SEE Magazine finally saw their longstanding rivalry reach a conclusion. In the end there would be just one paper left standing—but surviving in the new media landscape didn’t feel like much of a victory.

Thanks to those whose voices are heard in this episode: Mike Siek, Ron Garth, Jeff Holubitsky, Craig Janzen, Andy Cookson, Curtis Wright, Chelsea Boos, and Samantha Power.
