THERE IS NO LONGER A NEWSPAPER dedicated to documenting the Philadelphia neighborhoods of Germantown and Mount Airy.
This week, the Journal Register company closed the Germantown Courier and the Mount Airy Times Express. These closings come after the Journal Register closed two Northeast Philadelphia newspapers last year - the Northeast Breeze and the the News Gleaner.
Just yesterday in class, we were talking about media ownership and their impact on the audience.
"I've been living in Germantown all my life and we've always had the Courier," Brian Matthews told the Daily News. "This is terrible. It's a total loss."
"It's very sad," said Sally Maddox, who was mailing a letter at a box on Price Street. "We'll definitely miss it around here."
