With our new pretense of being a "real company," we’ve just done a bit of office decoration that I’ve had in mind for almost four years. I’m an old newsie at heart, and I grew up on images of newsrooms adorned with clocks showing the times in cities all over the world. You can kinda make out what I mean in this Mary Tyler Moore shot:
At Pegasus News, we have the same thing in our lobby, with a hyperlocal twist:
Here’s a detail.
16 clocks in all, representing various DFW communities, all set to the same time. (We’ll get the second hands synchronized when we switch for the end of daylight savings time.)
It’s a reminder to our team that covering the happenings in our neighborhoods should be every bit as important and sexy as covering New York, Rome, Paris and London.
This makes me ridiculously happy.
