Impact Weekly to Change Name, Editorial Focus

march 28, 2003  12:30 pm
The city of Dayton, Ohio has a new paper this week: AAN member Impact Weekly changed its name to Dayton City Paper and has "abandon(ed) the bully pulpit," Publisher Kerry Farley tells the Dayton Daily News. According to Farley, Dayton wasn't receptive to the traditional format of an alternative weekly, so in a bid to reach new readers he plans to change the left-leaning paper into a forum for local opinion that spans the ideological spectrum.
