Invited on a San Francisco Chronicle newsroom tour

920x1240Editor’s note: I enjoyed receiving this email this week from The Chronicle, where I worked for 12 years as a writer and editor. It was redolent of being invited to Willie Wonka’s chocolate factory. October 4 is a “workday” for our family, but I did talk to some former colleagues about bringing our son down this summer for a visit. Meanwhile, we are “new” subscribers. Ha!

“You and a guest are invited on a tour of The Chronicle newsroom led by Editor in Chief, Audrey Cooper. Spend a morning behind the scenes with our editorial staff inside the largest newsroom in Northern California. After the tour, you’ll get a chance to sit in on a newsroom meeting where the editors gather to discuss stories for online and in the newspaper.

  1. I don’t think Todd and the nitwits on his blog understand the difference between The Chronicle and The Union. “I wish I were in the land of podunk! Old times there are not forgotten …”

  2. Here’s some wisdom from Todd’s blog:
    “Todd JuvinallSeptember 22, 2016 at 8:56 AM is a better site. LOL!”

    And he’s a native from around here and a retired Board of Supervisor! No wonder the place can’t get “no respect.” lol.

  3. I finally had to kick him off Nevada County Vents, a FB group I admin. He called another member a perv, and would not profusely apologize. 2nd time he’s been booted, and this time he can stay away for a good long time. He reminds me of the Humming Toadfish of Sausalito houseboats fame. A one note pony.
