Media Dry Run
posted by December 31 at 11:25 AMon
The Cincinnati Post prints its final edition today, another print-media dinosaur going extinct. But it’s not the reporters’ fault. They’ve worked hard. They’ve been committed. Some for decades. So on closing day—on New Year’s Eve—they should enjoy a commemorative toast. Right?
To: Colleagues; From: Mike; Subject: Last day
Here’s what I know about how things are going to work on December 31, our last day:
John Vissman will arrange for food, beverages and treats for all as we get the last editions out, clean out our desks and say good-bye. But … tempting as it may be … please do not bring any alcoholic beverages into the newsroom. Let’s go out like the professionals we have been these last, difficult weeks.
Each staffer will also receive six free copies of the 50-cents-a-piece newspaper. Cheers.
