Spotlight newsroom: Orlando Sentinel
In light of this weekend's events, today Muck Rack would like to highlight the incredible staff behind the Orlando Sentinel, the primary newspaper of Orlando, Florida and the Central Florida region. Founded in 1876, this daily publication is owned by Tribune Publishing. Today the Sentinel led with a moving front-page editorial and on Sunday this newsroom of only 100 managed to produce 40 stories and 30 videos: "Unlike the profusion of cable news pundits and politicians who used the shooting as a jumping-off point to make a political point or further their own agendas, the Sentinel opted for a message of unity in its editorial," writes Poynter's Kristen Hare. The most highly followed journalist there is sports columnist George Diaz (at 13,820 followers), followed closely by columnist Scott Maxwell, theme park reporter, columnist and blogger Dewayne Bevil, UCF beat writer Iliana Limón and legal reporter Rene Stutzman. Keep up the commendable work, Sentinel staff -- not that you any reminder from us.
