Rowan University The Whit Newspaper Deadline

Rowan University The Whit Newspaper Deadline


So Wednesday nights we start off with a meeting at 5 o’clock. Talk about what went right, what went wrong, what was good, what was bad. Throughout the week and for last week’s issue, like if we had a misspelling or something was wrong in last week’s issue we’ll address this week, but then. So we talk about all that in the meeting and then we go upstairs, and that’s when stuff gets real. I’m really stressed out because I see some things aren’t edited yet by myself, some things came in late, Some things weren’t on deadline. And then there’s the games on Wednesday nights, like the women’s basketball game tonight. I gotta wait on that so I just get I get angry, but then I have all my everybody there. We just we laugh it, think that’s really funny. And then somehow some-something always makes us sad, and like the room will get like really quiet for like five minutes. And then somebody will just spark it up again, and everybody’s just going crazy We have to lay out the front and the back page. So we design the front cover and the back cover. We try and make it different, so it’s more engaging and it doesn’t look the same each week. So when you walk by it you’re like ‘oh, it’s just The Whit.’ You’ll see that it looks different and that’s kind of what our job is we make it visually appealing for people, so they’re more interested in picking up The Whit and just reading it in general. So for tonight’s work, as editor-in-chief, along with Ellie Leick, who’s our managing editor, I’m going through all of the stories Both making sure to publish those online, and then once all of our section editors get their pages together, Ellie and I will go through all of those pages and make sure all of that is taken care of. Something that I also get to do on a Wednesday night is write our daily editorial. So that kind of is a commentary based on something that’s been going on during the week. I’m also the one who actually sends the pages through a server to our printer, which is stationed in Belmar, New Jersey. I just want to get done and. It’s just it’s a, if-if you were to take a train and put every single emotion into that train and rattle it for like a four to five hour car ride or like train ride that’s what you’re going to get here. So that’s what we got here.
