Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis examines three newspapers in Corvallis and Salem, Oregon: the Corvallis Gazette-Times, the Oregonstatesman (Salem) and the Community Press (Salem). It examines the histories of the Gazette-Times and the Oregon Statesman as family-owned papers, and their current status as properties of newspaper chains. Based on interviews of key staff members, the thesis presents a look at what functions these newspapers serve and how they have changed because of trade trends and chain ownership. Salem is a unique example of a medium-size city with established morning and afternoon daily papers, owned by the same company, which faced recent competition from a weekly "shopper." Included in the thesis is the reaction of the daily papers to the coming of the weekly and finally, comments from selected community leaders of Salem. The thesis concludes with an overview of chain-owned newspapers nationwide, and discusses some of the long-term implications of increasing chain ownership.
