How do you sum up the YDR? We took a whack at it, but go to our Wikipedia page for more
Buffy Andrews, our social media editor, asked me to sum up the York Daily Record for a questionnaire.
How do you sum up a sprawling organization that covers news about 24-7?
I took a poke at it, drawing heavily on the York Daily Record’s updated Wikipedia page.
See what you think and feel free to comment below:
The York Daily Record is a news organization that produces multi-platform news products and serves York, Pennsylvania. The print version of its publications is the York Daily Record/Sunday News, circulation 55,000 daily and 85,000 on Sundays. The newsroom operates under the mission statement: Position ourselves as the number one news and information source in and about York County. The population of York County, in southcentral Pennsylvania, is about 450,000. The YDR is a member of Digital First Media, covering about 75 MediaNews Group and Journal Register Co. news organizations. Digital first means, among other things, that the newsroom – working across platforms – creates stories, curates content and engages with readers on news as it happens.
Btw, thanks to our own Brittany Wilson for re-drafting our Wikipedia page.
