There should be plenty of readership here in Houston with our alumni base. Prior studies show their readership and market coverage favors UH over other Texas universities. But it is a pro city and the paper has a lot of other school alums in the mix working there. The number of UH alums that have cancelled the Chronicle over the past decade is high and some of that is obviously the coverage the Chonricle gives the hometown university. The type of covereage UH gets over the decades is not common from a hometown paper around the country. The June article is a perfect example.
Agree, they should have a good relationship that flows both ways, but they don’t and what we are seeing is the result of that relationship over the decades.
