Morning report

“The Press of Atlantic City published 24-page editions on Tuesday and Wednesday and delivered where we could,” executive editor Neill Borowski tells Romenesko readers. “On Tuesday, the power went out in the newsroom and in the printing plant. We moved the editors to the business office, which still had power, and published the paper on our laptops. An off-site company printed the Wednesday paper (we printed our own Monday night for Tuesday).

“I’ve attached a photo of our editors and reporters working in a business office conference room to get the paper out last night.” (pressofatlanticcity.com)
