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. ← Frightsizing potential → Recall on fireworks that make ‘loud bang’ 6 replies on “A plea from newsrooms” Are you sure you work in a a NEWSROOM? (We work in the “Information Center”) 😉 That’s pretty good. My shop would have written, “Will somebody please reinvent this thing?” @Katie: We’re still Old School enough to call it a newsroom. But we have done away with “managing editor.” 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. You have an ice machine? We just had to fan our tongues. @Lillard. We’re good at fanning our tongues, too! Comments are closed.
