Times of crisis are the most challenging in the media business. We want to provide useful and accurate information. We want to do it in a timely fashion. And we know we’re doing it in a situation where events — and facts — are changing in real time.
We know you are bombarded by media, so we always question when too much is too much. This week, we ramped up our coronavirus coverage, adding a third daily email blast and several breaking news emails, and you responded with record-breaking open rates and pageviews. It let us know that we are doing our jobs. For that, we are grateful.
No one chooses to be in media. Journalism, the saying goes, chooses you. We are passionate about what we do and take pride in our efforts. And this week, more than ever, we thank you for allowing us to serve you. Thanks for reading.
