Come to our weekly news meetings, but don’t expect to be fed

The Irving (Texas) Rambler‘s news meetings have been open to the public for over a year, assignment editor Phil Cerroni tells Romenesko readers. “It’s spotty,” he says of reader participation. “A couple times a month people show up to give suggestions. We always end up getting something out of it. If nothing else, we get good reader feedback.” (h/t Dan Koller)
