Times Editor Chris Lopez's weblog

Wednesday, May 25, 2005

The day so far

The morning involved a 7:30 a.m. breakfast talk with the Pleasant Hill Chamber and small businesses in Pleasant Hill. That event lasted till 9:45 a.m., and during it we had a full discussion about the community focus of the newspaper and a re-emphasis around small businesses. Then at 10 a.m., it was an introduction to representatives with Macy's Department Stores. I hosted three Macy's reps in my office in the newsroom and we chatted about Barry Bonds, the 49ers and general chit-chat. Whether it's before a group like the Pleasant Hill Chamber or a major client like Macy's, I love to talk journalism and talk shop. The more I can discuss journalism and the newspaper, the more I see misconceptions about journalism being addressed. Journalists can do themselves and the profession a lot of good just by talking about what it is we do, how we conduct business, who we are and what we're about.
