There were many great moments from the 2016 APME-ASNE News Leaders Conference in Philadelphia – and quite a few of them are captured on the pages of this edition of APME News. My thanks to the great coverage provided by the students from Ball State University and Penn State University. You can read all about the coverage team on pages 27 and 28.
But my very favorite moment of the conference wasn’t at the conference. It was when several editors took in one of the Phillies’ last home games of the season at Citizens Bank Park. In between one inning, a few of us raised enough ruckus to have the roaming videographer capture a few frames of The Daily Astorian’s Carl Earl (Astoria, Oregon) celebrating his birthday with his spouse, and our APME president at the time, Laura Sellers-Earl.
It was indeed a conference for the record books – and another product of the teamwork that has developed between two great journalism organizations.
