  • The U.K.’s National Newspaper Building is open. Here’s what it looks like

    British Library | Harrogate Advertiser | The Baltimore Sun

    More than 60 million newspapers are now at home at the National Newspaper Building in Boston Spa, West Yorkshire in the United Kingdom, according to the British Library. The building opened on Friday.

    The National Newspaper Building was purpose-built to provide the ideal environmental conditions in which to store millions of old newspapers – many of which are in a fragile state. The vast facility, which houses around 33km of newspapers, maintains constant temperature and humidity, and a dark and airtight, low-oxygen environment to eliminate the risk of fire. The newspapers are stored in high-density racking 20 metres high and collection items are retrieved by robotic cranes, which transfer stacks of newspapers via an airlock to a retrieval area where staff can remove requested items and send them either to the British Library Newsroom at St Pancras or the on-site Reading Room at Boston Spa.

  • Dean Baquet: ‘I don’t have enough time’ to tweet

    Spiegel Online

    New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet told Der Spiegel in an interview published Friday that he’s too busy to stay “constantly” active on Twitter:

    I know this is going to get me in trouble, but I’ll say it: The whole notion that I am supposed to constantly tweet is ridiculous. There are a lot of journalists at the New York Times who tweet. I am not opposed to it. But I don’t have enough time. And editors don’t have much to say. My world consists of this office, this floor, my apartment and wonderful conversations with our reporters and correspondents — all of them know a lot more about the world than I do.

    Baquet has taken criticism for not being active on Twitter in the past. In October, Steve Buttry called on newsroom bosses to lead by example on social media, saying those who don’t put a damper on leadership in innovation. Read more

  • Modern Farmer’s last 2 paid staffers walk out

    The New York Times | Mashable

    The last two paid staff members at Modern Farmer walked out on Friday, Kim Severson reported for The New York Times. The magazine and website, founded in 2013, “ceased publication Friday, as the last of the paid editorial staff members walked out its doors. The future of what remains of the Modern Farmer brand is uncertain.”

    Hail and farewell MT @ModFarm: Been obnoxiously tweeting for 5 months here. Today I have no idea what to say. @Jesse_Hirsch, signing off.

    Founder and editor Ann Marie Gardner left the magazine in December, Joe Pompeo reported then for Capital New York.

    Gardner was known to have a fraught relationship with Modern Farmer’s investor, the Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra, who recently agreed to keep the magazine afloat in exchange for additional shares from Gardner, who was a minority owner.

CNY Central Announces Jim Kenyon to Retire

(Syracuse, NY) – December 2nd, 2014 - CNY Central announces investigative reporter Jim Kenyon will retire this month after 38 years with WSTM. In his time at WSTM and CNY Central, Kenyon has made his mark on Central New York by uncovering corruption, fraud and wrongdoing at every level. He has also been front and center during the biggest stories in our area over the last four decades.

Kenyon became a member of the WSTM news team in 1976. Before that he served as a reporter in Columbus, OH. He started his television career in 1970 at WSYR, then known as WNYS. Kenyon grew up in Syracuse, graduating from Henninger High School before going on to SUNY Morrisville.

 

Kenyon has been honored with dozens of awards on the local, state and national level. In 1992 he received a national award from Investigative Reporters and Editors for an investigation into fraud among local trash haulers. It resulted in the prosecution and imprisonment of six executives and 40 county employees pleading guilty to bribery charges. He’s also been honored by the U.S. Justice Department, Associated Press, New York State Broadcaster’s Association and Syracuse Press Club.

Galuski Battling Cancer
Written by Josh Cradduck   
Tuesday, 21 October 2014 11:38
 
UPDATE: Many have been wondering where Joe Galuski, a staple of 570 WSYR's programming lineup has been for the past 2 months. This morning, Galuski appeared on his own show with guest host Mark Wainwright and told his viewers that he has be...en battling cancer. The CNY broadcasting legend had previously dealt with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 1992, he said. However, this re-occurence is more serious. Galuski thanked his many listeners for sending cards and well wishes, but admitted the listeners didn't know what they were sending cards for, as his absense had not been explained by WSYR radio. He decided to put speculation to rest. He will continue with chemotheraphy, he says. Joe has been in the business since 1975 and has hosted 570's morning show since 1998. The Press Club wishes Joe all the best!
