Tuesday’s Globe Gazette was the first to come off the line in Des Moines, a shift in how our newspaper is printed. It also marks a shift for the sports department.
We will have an earlier deadline to navigate, but all of our content will appear online as soon as it is available. Morning and afternoon events should appear in print the next day; evening events can’t be printed until the following day.
This doesn’t mean we are done with live event coverage. The sports department – Leah Vann, David Durbala and myself – will still be out to as much as we can, but the stories which appear in the newspaper are going to be more feature and analysis driven. More and more, we’re learning, those are the stories Globe Gazette readers enjoy the most.
We’re excited about that.
If there’s a good story in North Iowa, we want to tell it. Now, we will have more time to do that.
Scores and roundups from area events will still be available in print and online. We strongly encourage all coaches to report their scores every night. Email is the preferred method, but if you have to call, be ready to leave a message.
Our goal is to still be out and about, to see more people and tell more stories.
If you have a story idea, let us know. No one can tell North Iowa sports stories like we can. That isn’t changing.
