Come meet Rob Curley, the Editor of The Spokesman-Review. Learn about the role of a community newspaper, about the history of The Spokesman-Review and take a tour of the renovated newsroom and other cool places like the iconic The Spokesman-Review Tower. Plus, we’ll share a few surprises and secrets that I think you will really enjoy.
We are getting together to talk about the role of a community newspaper in today’s day and age. We will talk about the history and recent changes to our newspaper and I’ll share some of the things most people don’t know about The Spokesman-Review’s website.
Prior to the presentation, we invite you to bring your tablet computer and meet with our team to discuss our e-Edition and accessing the digital replica from your device. Please remember to bring your iPad, Android Tablet or Amazon Kindle
As a part of our presentation, we will then help you get your tablet computer fully prepared to be able to see the “e” each morning. That’s where we need your help. We want you to use the “e” for a few weeks so that we can ask you what you like — and frankly — what you don’t like about it.
Yes, you will still get the print edition of The Spokesman-Review delivered to your home; we simply want to learn more about how our subscribers use the “e.”
But I promise this won’t be like some boring, college lecture for a class you didn’t want to take. We’re going to have a lot of fun and there will be a lot of laughs and great conversations. And, as I said earlier, a few surprises.
Your visit also will include a personal tour of our renovated newsroom from me, as well as parts of The Spokesman-Review building not typically available on tours — including a visit to The Spokesman-Review's iconic tower, going to the roof of The Chronicle building to see the gargoyles and a unique view of Downtown Spokane, seeing the former Spokesman-Review lobby from the early 1900s (which was closed to the public in the 1980s) and even visiting the presses.
Most of this tour is off limits to not just the public, but even to employees. Please note that the tour does include a lot of walking and some stairs, as there is no elevator to visit the clock tower.
