It is in that context that I introduce you to CJR’s Winter 2020 magazine—“What Now?”—aimed at taking stock of an industry in flux.

There’s much more, available online and coming to you in print, on 100-percent recycled post-consumer stock. You can also buy copies of the magazine from Barnes & Noble and other bookstores. The best way to read our printed work, and to support all we do online at, is to become a member. Click here for more.

I hope you'll spend meaningful time with this issue, and I thank you for your ongoing and enthusiastic support.

Thank you,

Kyle Pope
