Justin Murphy, Gary Craig and Tracy Schuhmacher appear on "Connections with Evan Dawson" on Friday, November 4, 2022.

Nearly the entire Democrat and Chronicle newsroom walked off the job this morning. The staff is engaging in a one-day strike to protest the lack of a contract and, as they describe it, the failure of their parent company to engage in good-faith negotiations.

We talk to striking journalists about what they're seeking, and how they view the future of the newspaper industry. Our guests:

  • Justin Murphy, education reporter at the Democrat and Chronicle
  • Gary Craig, public safety and criminal justice reporter at the Democrat and Chronicle
  • Tracy Schuhmacher, food and drink reporter at the Democrat and Chronicle
