Question of the Day

Jul 10, 2014

Yesterday's question of the day asked: What was New York's newspaper circulation per capita in 1830, before the introduction of the penny press? That would be one newspaper for every 16 citizens!

Congratulations to Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to his colleague Craig Pittman, whom he beat out by only just a hair, followed by freelance journalist Julie Webb-PullmanEdward Tenner (whose answer was especially detailed!), and Amy Zipkin!

As for today's question, here it is (should be an easy one for radio reporters, but others perhaps not so much!): What do you call an edited sound bite in radio, which distinguishes a wrap from a voicer?
