leave a comment »

>Our announcement on Thursday about The Register Citizen moving its offices to 59 Field Street, with an “Open Newsroom” concept that welcomes the community to be part of the process of local journalism at any step in the process, got lots of attention within the newspaper industry.

Here’s a roundup of some of the coverage, in case you missed it:
– From our newspaper, “Register Citizen to move office, open Newsroom Cafe”
– My column, “Come by for a cup of coffee, and a lot more”
– From the tech blog, GigaOm, “For newspapers, the future is now: Digital must be first”
– From Bud Wilkinson’s blog, “Two kinds of tips at Newsroom Cafe?”
– From the Republican-American (most of the article is behind a pay wall), “Register Citizen to move headquarters”
– Journal Register Company CEO John Paton’s presentation at the Transformation of News Summit, “Channeling Change”
– Our company’s press release on the announcement, “Journal Register Company unveils open community newsroom concept at Connecticut site; Register Citizen welcomes audience inside”
– From Hartford Business Journal, “Torrington paper to offer newsroom cafe”
– From Hartford Courant columnist Rick Green, “Cup of Joe with that news story?”
Finally, there’s lots more on our Newsroom Cafe and related new office plans at RegisterCitizen.Com/newsroomcafe, and we’ll be updating with more details as the date of our move approaches and in the weeks following our opening.
