What we are working on: Jan. 22

Here’s a look at our news budget at this hour for tomorrow’s paper. As you can see, it will be largely about Joe Paterno: his life, his death, his legacy, etc.

To give you some insight as to how much work is going into our Paterno coverage, I’ll share this: Normally on a Sunday, we have only three reporters, one Weekly Record copy editor who does work on our website, one additional copy editor and one metro editor in before about 5 p.m. Today, that number was nearly doubled by about 3 p.m.

What questions do you have about stories we’re working on, or about the budget form itself? Do you know of something we should be covering that you don’t see on the budget? Let us know by commenting here. And, check out our Google+ page for more conversation about how we’re covering the news.
