News Briefs: April 3
TKS goes daily, kind of
In the 2005 Flunk Day edition of The Knox Student, a satirical article titled “Screw it, TKS is going daily” announced that the paper, which had just switched from bi-monthly to weekly, was going daily instead. Starting this term, The Knox Student really will be publishing content regularly online throughout the week in a fairly daily fashion, rather than waiting until Thursday to publish a full issue. The print edition will still come out every Thursday and will contain the content published throughout the week, along with some new content.
The editors have set up a schedule so that three or more editors will be in the office every day except Saturday (unless something big happens, of course). All stories will receive the same or more attention as they have for publication in the print issue.
The editorial staff will also be switching positions around and hiring new members. Klayr Valentine-Fossum is now the assistant news editor, Amy LaBudde and Laura Miller are now the Mosaic editors, Deana Rutherford is now the managing editor, and Matt Baker is now the editor of the online edition. We are also hiring teams of copy editors, graphic designers and web-related staff.
