TNTJ September: If you were the editor of your local paper, what would you do?

Here’s the first response this month:

TNTJ: Review of The Journal and Courier Web site | By Daniel Victor.

VERDICT: I give it a B-. If your priority is to quickly scan and access the news of the day, this site does it better than most out there.

What it lacks, though, is the kind of innovation that will push the newspaper’s brand forward. It has to better package its Web-only content and show why the site can become more than a place to stop for news.

I think it’s interesting that the question was interpreted as “critique the Web site.”

I work for my local paper and am moving soon, so unless someone else is willing to switch with me as Daniel and Meranda did, I’m staying out of this one.
