After decades based in New Jersey’s largest city, The Star-Ledger earlier this year announced plans to move  most of its operations from Newark.

star-ledger logo My former Star-Ledger colleague, Guy Sterling, has organized a panel discussion and public forum that should interest anyone who pays attention to the state’s media landscape.

Requiem for a Newspaper: The Star-Ledger Leaves Newark is set for Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2014, from 7 pm to 9 pm at Rutgers-Newark, in the Robeson Campus Center, Rooms 255-257.

“The Star-Ledger’s departure leaves Newark without a daily newspaper for the first time since 1832. Come mark the occasion and ask a question, make a comment or share a memory,” Sterling said in a statement.

Scheduled panelists include:

  • Andy Baglivo, former Newark Evening News City Hall reporter
  • Bob Braun, former Star-Ledger education writer and columnist
  • Sharpe James, Newark’s longest-serving mayor
  • Dr. Clement Price, Rutgers professor and city historian
  • Stanley Terrell, former Star-Ledger City Hall reporter
  • Joan Whitlow, Star-Ledger reporter and columnist
