Extra! Extra! Isthmus is hitting newsstands tomorrow, August 5, for the first time in fifteen months after halting print production at the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
On today’s show, WORT news director Chali Pittman celebrates the triumphant return of Madison’s favorite alt-weekly (now an alt-monthly) with editor Judy Davidoff, reporter Dylan Brogan, and new publisher Jason Joyce.
They talk about the challenges and opportunities of publishing Isthmus, the importance of local journalism, and what’s in store for the newspaper looking forward.
