Jim Romenesko is tracking a big story—NBC-TV’s hunt for a small-town newspaper to feature in a new reality series. Some 70 papers have expressed interest.

As word spreads about this exciting tribute to the life we’ve chosen, it’s being received with the enthusiasm ink-stained wretches are famous for.

Sean Scully of the Weekly Calistogan commented on Romenesko’s Facebook page to say, “The producers missed out on their chance to follow my dramatic life: Two and a half hours last night hearing about water and sewer rates, followed by a late dinner of cheese, crackers and beer.”
