My magazine reading tends to lag by weeks or months, so I’m just coming across this lovely piece from the October Texas Monthly – Long Live the ‘Big Bend Sentinal’, Viva ‘El Internaticional’. It’s a lovely not too long read (10m) about the life and turnover of two regional newspapers. I won’t spoil the ending, but if you’re like me and read lots of these media articles with a sense of trepidation, this is a rewarding one.
Related, this piece from Texas Monthly from 2006 profiling one of the Big Bend Sentinel’s reporters, Sterry Butcher. You’ll come for the hominess, stick around for the raciness.
