Starting today, we will share with online readers a daily selection of stories our reporters and photographers are pursuing for our website and the newspaper. Fridays, we will share with you some of the stories we plan to cover over the weekend.
Beyond serving as coming attractions, this feature is an opportunity for you to comment on our coverage choices, suggest sources, ask questions or share your knowledge in order to help us keep everyone better informed.
We’re calling this “The Daily News Meeting” because the list is generated from the 10 a.m. planning meeting BDN editors conduct each weekday. We’ll post it soon after the meeting. Keep in mind that due to the uncertainties of reaching sources and the need to cover breaking news not every story listed will be published today.
