A plea from newsrooms Sign on icemaker in the newsroom at the Knoxville News Sentinel. The newsroom is in the midst of a reorganization and redefinition that is called "transformation." And, no, we haven't lost our sense of humor. Previous entry Next entry Comments katie allison granju July 3, 2008 2:18 PM Are you sure you work in a a NEWSROOM? (We work in the "Information Center") ;-) John Robinson July 3, 2008 2:24 PM That's pretty good. My shop would have written, "Will somebody please reinvent this thing?" Jack Lail July 3, 2008 3:05 PM @Katie: We're still Old School enough to call it a newsroom. But we have done away with "managing editor." Jack Lail July 3, 2008 3:08 PM It's deadly serious business to remake ourselves and reshape our culture and retool our operations, but I'm damn glad we have retained a sense of humor about it. http://openid.aol.com/malillard July 3, 2008 3:23 PM You have an ice machine? We just had to fan our tongues. Jack Lail July 3, 2008 3:40 PM @Lillard. We're good at fanning our tongues, too!
