The day will often start in the newsroom with a morning covering of stories for the day's paper and online posts. If you do not already have an assignment, you will be given one or more. Expect most of your day being outside the newsroom, unless you are an editor, getting information and quotes. You might need to write on the go, so have a pencil, paper, and a writing tablet with you. Also, make sure to get contact information from your sources in case you need more information or need to contact them to verify quotes. When you do submit, make sure you take the time to contact your sources one last time to confirm quotes used. Finally, always have your phone on you in case an editor needs to call you with a question or a last minute assignment.
