New media

Posted By on Mon, Feb 26, 2007 at 5:35 PM

You know the media world is changing when a daily newspaper reporter, the Democrat-Gazette's Scott Cain, divulges on The Buzz's afternoon sports talk show an exclusive story scheduled for the next day's paper.

It is that UAF men's basketball coach Stan Heath will be fired at the end of this season, barring an unexpected run in the SEC tournament that lands the Hogs in the NCAA tournament. Heath wouldn't comment, Cain said. This isn't exactly a surprise. We reported a couple of weeks ago that some in university leadership hoped for a "clean house" at the athletic department, beginning with Frank Broyles and including Heath and  football coach Houston Nutt. Still, confirmation of that likely happening is news. And people who get their news solely through a print newspaper will get it last. Not that they will know the difference, I guess.
