Weâve heard about the woes facing publishing â notable newspapers have shifted to online services, reducing or eliminating their print editions. Long-standing magazines have ceased publication. But as major papers and magazines scale back or disappear, how are Houstonâs local community papers doing? Are they picking up the slack? Expanding? Surviving?
On this edition of Houston Matters, we discuss the state of community papers in Houston with the publisher of five Houston community newspapers, the publisher of the Houston Sun, and a professor of communication at the University of Houston.
Also: it’s camping season. Unlike other parts of the country, where camping is most often associated with summer, here in Houston, weather conditions during these months are ideal for camping.

Plus: beauty and fashion in Houston. We meet the director of Houston’s Franklin Beauty School, andÂ the directorÂ of Fashion Houston, which startsÂ Tuesday nightÂ at the Wortham Center in downtown Houston.
