Mood of newsrooms
More here on the mood of newsrooms. The backdrop to this is an ever-changing landscape for newsrooms as we engage the Internet and the 24-hour news cycle. My thing is the only way to engage and change newsrooms is to be inside them. That's what we're doing at Contra Costa Times. I tell our staff of 200-plus journalists that our newsroom is changing, will be changing, and it's all for the better. For journalists, it's a matter of getting on board, being visionaries and being excited about the possibilities. At Contra Costa we will continue to succeed in producing a quality daily newspaper and quality community/weekly newspapers, and we will succeed in producing a quality web site. All three are vital (the daily paper, the weekly/community papers and our web site) and all three go hand-in-hand. It's a great time to be a journalist and to be inside a newsroom.
