The University of Maine Department of Communication and Journalism will host a series of focus groups to find out what Milo citizens think about the future of journalism.

You are invited to participate in a discussion of newspapers, television, radio and Internet news. Where do you get your news ? Is it the kind of coverage you need to know what is happening in your town ? Each group will last one hour and will be made up of 8-12 participants. Everyone is invited to join in the discussion and shape the future of news coverage for rural Maine communities.
