Davisville, March 23, 2020: Sacramento Bee Editor Lauren Gustus

I set up this interview before the coronavirus pandemic hit, to talk about the Bee, community journalism, the move from print to digital, its interest in Davis, and the financial problems that have eroded the newspaper and led its owner, McClatchy, to file for bankruptcy. This interview, recorded the afternoon of March 22,  still touches on those subjects, but we devote the first part of the show to how the Bee is covering the pandemic, including how it decides what stories to pursue beyond the obvious ones, and the kinds of articles its readers are asking for.
