Miami Herald drinks the Kool-Aid

Miami Herald executive editor Tom Fiedler sent an e-mail to the Herald staff yesterday. Full text here. Some excerpts:

“… constantly improving the newspaper isn’t going to guarantee success, either in journalism or in the marketplace.”

“… we will make delivering that journalism on MiamiHerald.com and our other media platforms just as high a priority as delivering it in The Miami Herald. Let me repeat that for emphasis: Just as high.”

“Every job in the newsroom — EVERY JOB — is going to be redefined to include a web responsibility and, if appropriate, radio. For news gatherers, this means posting everything we can as soon as we can. It means using the web site to its fullest potential for text, audio and video. We’ll come to appreciate that MiamiHerald.com is not an appendage of the newsroom; it’s a fundamental product of the newsroom.”

Amen!
