I was fortunate to attend the Why Texas Newspapers Matter panel discussion at #TribFest17. The following Texan daily newspaper editors talked about what their papers are doing to reassert their role in the digital age: Robert Moore, El Paso Times. Mike Wilson, The Dallas Morning News. Carlos Sanchez, McAllen Monitor. Debbie Hiott, Austin American-Statesman. Lauren Gustus, Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Moderated by RD Brenner, School of Journalism – University of Texas at Austin.
