Working on better results

Over the past couple of weeks, there have been too many typographical errors creeping into the Peninsula Clarion. We agree with the readers who have called us out of late: nobody wants to read a paper with typos, and it’s frustrating to not be able to solve a puzzle because it was formatted wrong.

 

Believe us, no one is more embarrassed than we are when an error appears in print. The last thing we want is to show up in Jay Leno’s “Headlines” segment.

In this business, as in any other, there are reasons and there are results. To our readers, it’s the results that count. With that in mind, we have taken a look at our newsroom workflow and made changes in an effort to improve the results.

We can’t promise perfection. While we will strive for it day in and day out, mistakes will happen. But they should be a rare exception, not a regular occurrence. Our mission will continue to be to deliver information in a timely and accurate way.

We’re glad that our readers care about their hometown paper. We appreciate that the community holds us to a high standard, and we value feedback. Going forward, we’re going to do a better job to ensure our readers have a product of which they can be proud.

As always, questions, comments and criticism can be directed to Clarion editor Will Morrow. He can be reached weekdays by phone at 907-335-1251, and by email at will.morrow@peninsulaclarion.com.
