Atlanta Jewish Times Editor Michael Jacobs Reflects On Communities, Stories Covered
The Atlanta Jewish Times has a history as varied and complicated as the community it covers. In 1924, the Southern Israelite was founded as a family-owned paper. The name changed in the 1980s, when it was bought by a Jewish paper in Baltimore. A series of buy-outs and editorial hand-offs later, Michael Jacobs became editor — a position he's held twice in the past 13 years. On Second Thought host Virginia Prescott speaks with Michael Jacobs.
Jacobs recently left the paper. He joined on Second Thought host Virginia Prescott to talk about the paper and the community it covers.
