Reporting

Reporting
• Care about what happens in your community. Be a part of it by seeking out new sources and coverage ideas.
• Know what is going on around you. Awareness is key and will begin with staying connected to your publications coverage.
• Listen to readers/viewers. Take time to meet them face-to¬face. Listening closely to people outside of your newsroom will lead to new relationships.
• Look for ways to make all of the pieces of the reporting fit together in a complimentary manner.
• Develop new contacts and resources that are open and available to you. Be smart about how you use them.
• Resist the temptation to rely on the status quote, "We have always done it this way."
