This week Bryan sits down with the Publisher of one of Alabama's few remaining local news publications that has kept its integrity intact. Scott Buttram is the Publisher of the Trussville Tribune, a local publication that serves a much greater area than just Trussville. Scott and Bryan discuss the history of how news publications went south after the loss of major advertising revenue and the effect that has had on our state and nation, as well as how he was able to thrive despite the decline in the industry.
Behind the Scenes this week is a no holds barred analysis of the legislative session and Alabama politics in general. Scott has a reputation for pulling no punches on his Twitter account and we bring that lively discussion to podcast form.
