I had the honor of participating in a Twitter chat with some of the big names in newspaper journalism — Melanie Sill, Howard Weaver, Mike Fancher and Glenn Proctor. Well, actually, they were big names. We’ve all moved on to other things. Thus, the topic of the chat: Ex-editors on what they would do differently.
It was more fun than listening to an editor scream “Gimme the damn story!” at you when you’re 5 minutes past deadline. And now, it’s been Storified.
Sadly, my best line was one fed to me by GenlGreensboro that newspapers need more cowbell.
Seriously, the conversation was enlightening. I hope the journalists reading this will read the Storify link.
