  • 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.

    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.

  • Dumb moves lead to life without a smartphone

    Alan Herzberger | Updated: Fri, Jan 9, 2015

    I lived three days without a phone this week. It sounds easy – even relaxing, maybe – but it wasn’t. It was stressful — more stressful than being constantly connected. We’ll start from the beginning. Here’s what I learned this week. Don’t wash your phone. The washing machine works great for your clothes. But the […]

  • Find us on Twitter ... and on other platforms, too

    Alan Herzberger | Published: Fri, Jan 2, 2015

    I know a smart fella who’s a great case study in the way people consume news digitally these days. This guy I know is a business professional in his 40s. He doesn’t read the newspaper every day. He doesn’t have a home page for news on his Internet browser. He’s not even interested in participating […]
