  • 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 […]
