How Newsrooms Lost Their Homes

From The Poynter Report:

Mark Pickering, formerly a journalist at the Boston Herald, recently went looking for his old company’s offices. With some shoe leather sleuthing, he found them — on the fourth floor of an office building in suburban Braintree. Some outsize photos and a relief of the paper’s familiar newsboy logo were mounted in the hall.

But midday, midweek, no one was there.

The Herald is among the ranks of still-publishing newspapers and websites that no longer have an office for reporters and editors. A partial list: Miami Herald, New York Daily News, The Hartford Courant, The Morning Call in Allentown, and the Capital Gazette in Annapolis.
