“I think there is the greatest demand for local news coverage,” Shapiro said. “We see that in our statistics. Sixty-seven percent of our readers come from mobile devices, so print newspaper can’t service those people.

“The other interesting thing is that more and more older Americans are reading their news online. In terms of our demographics of our own site a great majority of our readers are 45 and older. In fact, 20 percent of our readers are 65 and older. This notion that older people don’t read online isn’t true.”
