WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Exponent) - The onset of the digital age has impacted newspaper publishing in many ways, including here at The Exponent. But what sort of technology is used to put a newspaper together?
The planning for each day's issue of The Exponent begins about a week prior to press time. The editors hold daily meetings, called budget meetings, to discuss potential stories for upcoming issues. Editors from each desk—campus, city, features, sports, opinions, photo, and multimedia—present the assignments they have given to their reporters and identify related multimedia needs for the story. This is also when possible "box" stories—stories that will appear on the front page—are identified. The budget meetings are typically run by the managing editor, who oversees the actual construction of the newspaper.
