When it comes to community news, the answer is ‘Yes’

I’ve photocopied it literally hundreds of times over the years and handed it out to the reporters and editors in the various newsrooms I’ve led or spoken to as a consultant with The Register Citizen’s parent company.

It’s an advice column from a trade publication from about 10 years ago entitled, “How to be a ‘Yes’ Editor.” The brief, simple message is that local newspapers are here to provide in-depth community coverage, and if a community member or reader thinks it is news, it is.
