Be the editor activity

leave a comment »

Scenario: You get a news tip from a source that a major factory in town — Superior Plating — is filing for Chapter 11. The source heard about it a neighborhood business meeting. Your newspaper wrote about the factory in 2004.

 

Questions:

  1. What are your next steps as editor?
  2. Who are potential sources for the story?
  3. Where do you go to learn more about the bankruptcy?
  4. Do you tweet out the news right away?
  5. When do you post something online?
  6. What would you do for the print edition?
