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 KirkThomas Feyer of the New York TimesRobert FortnerIrene DeBlasioDagmar EbaughHiram Reisner, freelance journalist Amy ZipkinAnna Reitman of Automated TraderCharlotte LoBuonoCarrie GrayPaula B GreenKen Walker of the Tampa Bay TimesMyles SweeneyHollywood HighlandsDan Freedman of Hearst NewspapersClaudine Laforce (who also named the first newspaper that was published on that street!), Rachel RohJennifer Mascia of the New York TimesHal 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?
