Daily News Meeting

Hey Folks,

I'm writing not in my capacity as the union guy right now, but just as a fellow colleague with news of a meeting that's going to be held Wednesday, Dec. 21 at 3 p.m. Evan Pondel and I are going to be talking about a couple of new features we cooked up, "Behind the Scenes" and "My Story" that anyone can pitch in on. The former focuses on unusual jobs, such as the blade sharpener for the Kings, and the latter tells the tales of the unique people who make up the Valley.

Anyone's welcome to attend, whether you're a reporter or any other job, we'd love to get your feedback. We'll take suggestions for more stories, tell you how to contribute your own, and come up with ideas for similar features going forward. This is all part of the ongoing plan to remake the Daily News and keep it fresh-- unlike some past initiatives, however, these aren't top down edicts. They're good ideas that'll bubble up from folks like you who make up the newsroom.

Hope to see you there-- if you can't make it but are interested, gimme a call at 818-713-3738 tomorrow and we'll either find a way to teleconference you in or provide info afterward.


Where: Woodland Hills, Zebra lounge
When: Wednesday, Dec. 21, 3 p.m.
