  • Who are your favorite TV show journalists?

    Today is the anniversary of the first episode of the Mary Tyler Moore Show, which debuted in 1970. Poynter’s David Shedden wrote about the show and the recognition it received for today’s media history post.

    A native app can be expensive to develop and maintain, and unless your push notification strategy manages to provide real utility rather than sporadic annoyances, the only way a reader ever enters it is by deliberately searching for the icon — perhaps buried on the third page of a home screen or inside the dreaded Newsstand on iPhones — with no idea what content awaits.… Read more
