Editor's Daily Note 01/02/20

Regular meeting.

We still need to work on our communication. If you are moving a story … remember that breaking news takes precedent. It’s fine to schedule, but if you can’t check Slack, let someone know so we can take the story offline. We had some good stories over the holidays that were bunched up with other good stories … it’s better for readers if we can keep a good flow. On the daily we are still shooting for at least one in three time slots: 7 am EST, Noon EST, and 5 pm EST. This year I think we should experiment and try placing our lead am story late Phoenix time … so no one has to be up early putting it in the cover position.
