LAFAYETTE — John Georges, owner and publisher of The Advocate, was upbeat about newspapers in general and about his in particular when speaking Saturday to college reporters at the Southeast Journalism Conference in Lafayette.
“Don’t listen to anything that they’re saying about your future. It’s going to be really exciting,” Georges told a crowd of students at the Lafayette Hilton, discounting the dismal narrative that’s often heard about the future of newspapers.
