Question of the Day
Friday's question of the day (an easy one for radio journalists) asked: Which street in London has been called the birthplace of England's (and perhaps the world's) modern newspaper? That would be Fleet Street!
Congratulations to Craig Pittman of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to Ryan Gorman of the Daily Mail, Jeanne Kirk, Thomas Feyer of the New York Times, Robert Fortner, Irene DeBlasio, Dagmar Ebaugh, Hiram Reisner, freelance journalist Amy Zipkin, Anna Reitman of Automated Trader, Charlotte LoBuono, Carrie Gray, Paula B Green, Ken Walker of the Tampa Bay Times, Myles Sweeney, Hollywood Highlands, Dan Freedman of Hearst Newspapers, Claudine Laforce (who also named the first newspaper that was published on that street!), Rachel Roh, Jennifer Mascia of the New York Times, Hal Davis of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, syndicated columnist Margo Howard, and Alan Blaustein for all being "spot on," as well!
As for today's question, here it is: The phrase "Fleet Street" continues to be used as a metonym for the British national press, even though the last major British news office left in 2005. Which outlet was that?
