  • The interns and the veteran journalist: What they learned at lunch

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Mon, May 25, 2015

    School’s out. That means one important thing for managers in The Oklahoman’s newsroom. Interns are here. We love it when the interns are here. They bring energy. They bring ideas, and on their first day of orientation, there’s often a free lunch. This year, the interns lucked out. There was lunch, sure, but The Oklahoman’s […]

  • Don't miss any breaking news: download the NewsOK app

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Fri, May 22, 2015

    Two weeks ago, NewsOK launched an app for Android devices. Last week, NewsOK added an upgrade to its app for iOS devices. And this week, we are asking NewsOK users to download the app. There’s a good reason for it. The new app (Android) and the upgraded app (iOS) will deliver notifications for breaking news. […]

  • Video games go live on the Big Screen for some Friday fun

    Alan Herzberger | Published: Fri, May 15, 2015

    It was a fun Friday at The Oklahoman offices at 100 W. Main. We fulfilled a goal that we’ve had since we moved into our downtown office space earlier this year. We played video games live on the Big Screen.     It was a tournament. We had nine guests play in the tournament, and […]

  • From the judge's mouth: You are a lucky reader of The Oklahoman/NewsOK

    Alan Herzberger | Published: Fri, May 8, 2015

    It’s been a busy year around here. We moved offices. We’re downtown, if you haven’t heard. We lit up a Big Screen at Robinson and Sheridan. We participated in a nice proposal. We covered some big news, gaining big audience and readership for our coverage of the SAE racist video controversy in March, our Oklahoma […]

  • NewsOK's enhanced Travel page takes you to more places

    Alan Herzberger | Published: Fri, May 1, 2015

    We added a new page to our navigation for the NewsOK Mobile website a few weeks ago. Click on the navigation icon in the top right, and it’s clearly there marked with a ‘new’ icon.     It’s called travel. You’re probably thinking that it’s not new for us to cover travel with a special […]

  • Available on all Oklahoman/NewsOK platforms: Creativity in Oklahoma 2015

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Sun, Apr 26, 2015

    You probably noticed your newspaper today is heavier than last Sunday’s newspaper. So heat up an extra cup of coffee. It’s going to take a bit longer to dig in to all the content that’s available in Outlook 2015. There are five sections in this annual special edition, but all of it is centered on […]

  • Fake link incorrectly shows a story written by The Oklahoman

    By Alan Herzberger | Updated: Fri, Apr 24, 2015

    An article about the Oklahoma City Thunder's firing of head coach Scott Brooks appeared to look like it was written by The Oklahoman's Darnell Mayberry.  It was not.  The story quoted reaction from Brooks and a report from Mayberry. It is untrue and was not produced with The Oklahoman's authorization. The Oklahoman's complete and accurate coverage of the Oklahoma City Thunder can be found on our page: http://newsok.

  • New social gallery yet another way to tell the story

    Alan Herzberger | Published: Fri, Apr 17, 2015

    We launched a new form of galleries on this month. It’s like our photo galleries, but it has much more than static images. It’s a social gallery, allowing us to gather posts from around the web about a topic and embed them into a gallery that makes it easy to slide through. The social […]

  • Through NewsOK's looking glass: Live interviews with Oklahoma City newsmakers

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Fri, Apr 10, 2015

    Since we’ve moved into our offices in downtown Oklahoma City, one thing has certainly changed. More people in the news are walking around our newsroom. That’s the idea, actually. At the old building, the one on Britton and Broadway, the video studio was on a separate floor. It was a great studio, but it wasn’t […]

  • The Oklahoma City bombing 20 years later: The Oklahoman and OETA remember

    Alan Herzberger | Published: Sun, Apr 5, 2015

    Two weeks from today, Oklahoma will have a somber morning. We will be silent and remember. It’s been 20 years since April 19, 1995. We all know what that day has meant to our state. So many words can describe the emotions that have resulted from the events of that morning and all the anniversaries that have […]

  • NewsOK Now: When we can't be there, you can

    Alan Herzberger | Published: Fri, Mar 27, 2015

    Our photographers are quick to action any time there is breaking news around our communities. I honestly don’t know a harder-working, more conscientious group of journalists. When news happens, you can be certain The Oklahoman’s photographers will be quick to have a photo gallery on NewsOK and the shot of the day the following day […]

  • Putting The Oklahoman in your pocket

    Alan Herzberger | Published: Fri, Mar 20, 2015

    I joined the boss at the Rotary Club 29 meeting in downtown Oklahoma City this past Tuesday afternoon. From our downtown office, getting to the Petroleum Club atop the Cotter Ranch Tower is easy – much easier than when we were stationed at Britton and Broadway. I certainly can’t complain about the one-block rush to […]

  • Basketball madness on NewsOK: Where the games begin

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Fri, Mar 13, 2015

    Where will you be on Thursday? A restaurant with lots of TVs? A sports bar? Your house? A spring break vacation destination? Maybe you’ll be planted at the office with an eye on NewsOK’s  live scoreboard. Wherever you will be, I suspect you will have some idea of the college basketball games that will start […]

  • See your favorite team's score up in lights

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Fri, Mar 6, 2015

    The digital video screen on the corner of Robinson and Sheridan outside our new downtown offices is quite the hit. It’s a conversation starter for sure. And most of the conversations end with something like, “I just think that screen is cool.” I think they mean it, too. In my business, people rarely say nice […]

  • Instameet on Saturday: Learning photography from the pros

    Alan Herzberger | Published: Sun, Mar 1, 2015

    Doug Hoke spends almost every afternoon sifting through the best pictures that he can showcase to the state the following morning in The Oklahoman. He shares the images with other editors, and they choose the best options for the next day’s Page 1.     It’s a fun part of his job — choosing the […]

  • Read the entire Obese Oklahoma series on

    Alan Herzberger | Published: Sun, Feb 22, 2015

    We’re halfway through a series that we hope makes a big difference by drawing attention to a problem within our community and our state. It’s called ‘Obese Oklahoma.’     The introduction for the first installment of the series breaks down all the questions we explore. How big of a problem is obesity? How did […]

  • Seeking your creativity for a newspaper cover worth keeping

    Alan Herzberger | Published: Fri, Feb 13, 2015

    Our readers created a nice centerpiece design on Thursday. Thanks for that. I hope you had a chance to pick up The Oklahoman on Thursday. Graphic artist Suzanne Green created the design based on words that were submitted by our readers over the past couple of weeks. Readers were asked to submit one word that […]

  • Just another giant signing day on NewsOK Sports

    Alan Herzberger | Published: Fri, Feb 6, 2015

    At one time — years ago — I spent weeks planning our college football signing day coverage. It was a big deal. The Oklahoman’s sports coverage team was a leader in innovation – covering the signing day madness with non-stop multimedia, including updates and blogs and podcasts and chats. That day was going to be […]

  • Speed-painting videos highlight NewsOK's upcoming coverage of The Oscars

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Fri, Jan 30, 2015

    This weekend, we’ll all be watching and talking about the Super Bowl. We’ll talk about the food we ate, the big play and the halftime show. It’s the closest thing we have to a national holiday that’s not actually a national holiday. Except for Easter — I almost forgot about Easter not being a national holiday. […]

  • The Oklahoman's movie review of 'American Sniper' goes global

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Sat, Jan 24, 2015

    ‘American Sniper’ became a hot topic on the Internet this past week. A lot of it was political, to be sure. That’s to be expected. It’s a movie about war. Since just about every topic on the Internet becomes political, a movie about war is bound to become political, as well. But a good portion […]
