As a part of the program we visited the New York Times newsroom. We started out by chatting with Neil Amdur and Merrill Perlman Both Mizzou grads. One of the most interesting things that I learned there was about their “Continuous News Operation.” The NY Times is structured so that the focus on getting the latest news out to the readers. This means that the CNO is responsible for keeping the stories fresh not only for the website but also for the different versions of the paper. This goes to prove that the NY Times is serious when they say they are “Platform Agnostic.”
