On Monday, we were in the unenviable position of missing MLK parade activities in Bowling Green. They began at 10 a.m. and we had to opt for Tuesday coverage of the event.
It had become an off-cycle event for us, so we had Page 1 coverage Monday of national MLK news, plus coverage from Sunday that focused on local educators honored by a local MLK committee.
Luckily, we have the Internet to give our readers more to chew on before Tuesday’s coverage rolls around. We videotaped the Monday morning event, and, as I type, we’re preparing a video to be posted later today on the Net.
Using the Internet gives newspapers a much stronger avenue to keep up with developing stories. We’re using that tool more and more and hope that you, our readers, enjoy the extra work we put in.
But don’t forget, we have second-day coverage that will provide many more details of the local MLK Day activities, so keep reading.
