• Subscribers can read 'Saving the Last Dance' series on Oklahoman.com

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Fri, Jun 26, 2015

    We're releasing what we believe is a great story today. Actually, we think we have great coverage every day. It's really amazing how many compelling stories and news updates we have within The Oklahoman packaged and organized every single day. While that part is amazing, there are still some stories that simply jump off the screen as we edit them. That's what we have this week:  a great story about great people within our community.   'Saving the Last Dance' is a four-part series from reporter Juliana Keeping that launches in The Oklahoman today. Subsequent chapters will be released in the following days. The ending to the story -- Chapter 4 -- will be released on Wednesday.

  • It's not too late to cast your vote for Reader's Choice 2015

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Fri, Jun 19, 2015

    There is still time. You’ve had all week, but there’s still time. The Oklahoman’s Reader’s Choice Top 5 section was released within The Oklahoman’s editions on Sunday. Voting started online Sunday morning at Oklahoman.com/ReadersChoice. We’ve received thousands of online votes in each of the 12 categories – and that’s not counting the votes that have been sent in via the mailed ballots from Sunday’s section. We’re counting the mail-in ballots, too. But I’m not kidding about the thousands of votes. It will take us some time. Having worked in a newsroom for two decades now, I know a little about waiting until the last minute.

  • The Oklahoman/NewsOK a finalist for 'Innovator of the Year'

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Fri, Jun 12, 2015

    We at The Oklahoman and NewsOK are getting pretty familiar with the idea of innovation. We've had to. The world is changing. People consume news in many different ways than they did in past generations. So we innovate. We develop apps, video studios and websites -- all to come up with new ways to reach our readers. That innovation has helped us consistently grow our audience in the past decade or so. But it has also caused our peers across the county to recognize and honor us. APME also announced that the Boston Herald, the Los Angeles News Group and The Oklahoman were finalists for its Innovator of the Year Award. They will compete at APME's joint conference with the American Society of News Editors from Oct.

  • The Oklahoman's app is the last app standing on vacation

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Fri, Jun 5, 2015

    I was out of my normal rhythm of news consumption this past week. I went on vacation, so I was suddenly a different kind of news consumer for The Oklahoman's wide array of products. The normal day In my normal rhythm, I use The Oklahoman's app early in the morning on my iPhone. That's when I get a glimpse of the newspaper's content for the day. I follow that with a run through NewsOK.com on the same phone. I tend to use the NewsOK mobile website instead of the app, but I fully understand how the app allows for better notifications and alerts. During my commute to the office, I sometimes use the The Oklahoman Radio app, which will read the stories from that day's edition of the newspaper. It's a handy tool for
