« 10 Newspapers That Do It Right | Main | My interview with Oregon Business »

Facebook Live

Early on in the press run at The Register-GuardI did a Facebook Live video during a Thanksgiving Eve visit to our pressroom to visit employees on the busiest night of our year -- the Thanksgiving Day paper had nearly 700 pages of news and advertising. 

My goal was to show the pressroom and packaging and assembly department in full motion, to demystify a little bit of what we do to print and distribute a newspaper each day. We call the newspaper "the daily miracle" for good reason, and seeing and hearing the newspaper come to life from digits to hard ink and paper never gets old. 

This was my first Facebook Live video, so there were some technical things I learned that I won't repeat next time, but all in all I thought the end result gave people a taste of the hard work many people do to print a top-quality newspaper and get it distributed each day.
