a newspaper is more than writing news
A newspaper is more than writing news

It has been said that a reporter’s ego is like an unskilled brain, a quivering mass of vulnerability.

News English

slide3
But no matter how big an ego a reporter may have, the simple fact of newspapering is that no story, no matter how well written, would be printed and seen by readers without the important work of dozens-often hundreds-of men and women in all departments of the newspaper, starting in the newsroom.

  • Most of the public’s attention is focused on reporters chiefly because they are the “point” men and women of the news business. More people know reporters by name or reputation than they do press operators. Yet both are essential to a newspaper.

Reporter is the most visible
  • A newspaper’s reputation often is based on the public’s perception of its reporters. They usually are blamed by the public for all the perceived sins of the press simply because they are the most visible members of the staff.

technology got more attention
Technology got more attention
  • Despite the prominent role of the reporter, increasing attention has been given in recent years to the dramatic advances in the technology of printing and the speed with which news can be delivered to the public.

News English

slide7
At times, in the trade press in particular, it has appeared that the technology of the industry was more important than the human beings involved in the news process.

News English

without press operators without reporters
Without press operators, without reporters
  • Like printing technology, however, the reporter is better than ever. At the same time, reporters cannot afford to be arrogant about their importance:

because without the important work performed by all the others in the organization, business and technical as well as editorial personnel, their work would be useless. Each of the three major departments of a typical newspaper plays a significant role in the delivery of news to reader.

Most people know about the newsroom side of newspapers through books, television and movies. But for every writing and editing position at a newspaper, there are many other good opportunities waiting for today's job seeker. People who are skilled at newspaper work can take their careers.

Whoever you can see
  • Look inside any newspaper and you'll see artists, photographers, salespersons, advertising specialists, marketers, business managers, accountants, distributors, computer experts, personnel specialists, Web producers, and production coordinators, not to mention support staff such as secretaries, maintenance professionals, drivers and telephone operators.

whatever you like
Whatever you like
  • So whether you like words, numbers, photography, art, the Web, sales, working with intricate machinery or meeting the public, think about newspaper work.

News English

slide17
The people in the business or finance office are the newspaper’s scorekeepers.

News English

slide18
The business division is responsible for the efficient operation of all the newspaper’s revenue-producing divisions. It is presided over by a business manager or general manager, who oversees all sales, budgets, and capital expenditures.

News English

slide19
It receives, spends, and invests money, and supervises everything pertaining to the business side of the newspaper, including advertising, circulation, and job printing.

News English

slide20
To finance the other department, advertising space must be sold, subscriptions must be solicited and the finished product must be delivered to the readers.

News English

slide21
To handle these important duties, most newspapers have separate advertising and circulation departments under the business department, even finance departments.

News English

slide22
At some papers, the next publisher might be working in the business department, not editorial. It is sometimes thought that a financial person can learn the editorial side better than an editorial person can learn the business side. But one thing is for sure: There is power in controlling a company’s purse strings.

News English

slide23
Whether you’re the bookkeeper, a payroll clerk, the auditor or the vice president for finance, your financial skills and business sense will ensure the newspaper’s continued vitality.

News English

advertising
Advertising
  • This is the most important revenue-producing center in the entire newspaper.

News English

slide25
It is presided over by an advertising manager who is in charge of generating and directing sales in all advertising categories: retail, national, classified, an preprints.

News English

slide26
The advertising manger is assisted by managers who control directly each of these separate categories.

News English

slide27
One reason people pursue a career in newspaper advertising is the diversity. You can create advertising for a fashion advertiser one minute and a hospital the next.

News English

slide28
You encounter big customers, small customers, customers with tightly targeted prospects and those with multiple locations and wide customer appeal.

News English

slide29
People also enjoy newspaper advertising because newspaper advertising works. Customers are typically glad to see you because they recognize that their newspaper advertising gets results.

News English

slide30
Newspapers are a reach medium. A high percentage of people in the community are reached when you advertise in newspapers. In fact, newspapers provide the highest reach of any medium in a market.

News English

slide31
In newspapers, you can reach a wide geographic area or a targeted one, such as sports fans or food fanatics, subscribers, single-copy purchasers or even non-subscribers.

News English

slide32
You can use in-paper advertising, preprinted inserts, printed single sheets of paper, color, magazines or a host of other options within the medium.

News English

circulation
Circulation
  • This department is the lifeblood of the newspaper. Without it the newspaper would carry no advertising, and without advertising the paper would not survive.

News English

slide34
Circulation is much more than getting newspapers off the presses, onto the streets and into readers’ homes. It is the total marketing of the newspaper and related specialty products to the consumer.

News English

slide35
Presided over by a circulation manager, the circulation department is split into smaller units, consisting of district and state circulation.

News English

slide36
At the same time, circulation managers are the newspaper’s experts in sales, customer relations and merchandising.

News English

slide37
Every day the circulation staff applies a variety of marketing techniques to convince people that reading a newspaper is essential to help them make day-to-day decisions in a complex world, and that the newspaper is worth their investment of time and money.

  • The complicated and highly technical process of transforming the reporter’s stories into type and reproducing them on thousands of pages of newsprint is done by the mechanical department, which includes the composing room and the pressroom. The printing process has become highly computerized.

News English

the pressroom
The Pressroom
  • This is where the actual printing of the newspaper occurs. The pressroom is presided over by a foreman who synchronizes his unit’s schedule with the other mechanical units before it, and with the mail room and circulation after it.
