New Chicago Newspaper

October 8, 2012

David Sweet ’81 helped to launch a new newspaper on the North Shore of Chicago in October. Called The North Shore Weekend, the publication features the feel of a magazine, with its focus on profiles and big-picture stories, yet appears on newsprint. “Our mentors are publications such as The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker,¬†and the like. The whole idea seems counterintuitive in the Internet age, but plenty of people still enjoy a leisurely weekend read courtesy of print.”
