Featured newsroom: Springfield Republican

Jan 16, 2014

For today's featured newsroom, we're going to take a look at the tweeting journalists of The Springfield Republican a newspaper based in Springfield, Massachusetts that played important roles in the Republican Party's founding, Charles Dow's career, and the invention of the honorific "Ms." Fun facts!

The most highly followed journos there include Garrett Quinn, MassLive Reporter and Contributor; Leeanne Griffin, Associate Producer, MassLive.com; Shira Schoenberg, Politics Reporter; Patrick Johnson, Crime Reporter; Robert Rizzuto, Politics Reporter, MassLive.com. Meanwhile, their top trending article this morning (written by crime reporter Johnson, by the way) is definitely a fun read: "Would-be carjackers thwarted by manual transmission." We're pretty sure you'll want to read that one!
