Wednesday for the 125th birthday of the Times-News we are not only producing a special seection about our history but our regular A section will be inside a wrap — a four-page sheet that covers the front and pack of the newspaper. The wrap will feature photos of our folks — from newsroom to advertising to production and circulation — getting out the newspaper. Photographers Sam Roberts and Scott Muthersbaugh took the pictures and managing editor Jay Ashley wrote the text. Advertising will be included.
Here’s what the cover looks like — only the one in the paper will have an ad at the bottom. I love this photo of pressroom foreman Sherwood Bland standing by as newspapers roll of the press. Sam took the image. It’s a keeper. The romance of the press itself is a big part of why I love the work we do.
