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.”
