Discussing primary election coverage with Mark Lieberman

Recent Asheville transplants Mark and Shelley Lieberman have quickly immersed themselves in their new town, with activities as varied as teaching a course at the OLLI College for Seniors at UNC Asheville, working on theater productions and hosting and producing a weekly radio show on the community access station WPVM 103.7 FM.

Mark Lieberman asked Mountain Xpress news writers Able Allen and David Floyd and me to chat with him about Xpress‘ recent primary election coverage and the outcomes of that contest. Along the way, we managed to discuss our mission, our editorial decision-making process and how the role of a community newspaper differs from other types of media.
