You’ve heard us say this before: We want to hear from you.
The Press & Dakotan sports staff welcomes feedback on our coverage. It’s the only way we can improve our content, to know what people want to read and what they think of what they read. It’s how newspapers survive — that interaction with their readers.
In the world of sports, the good comes with the bad. For every state championship and big win comes a frustrating loss or a key injury. It’s the cyclical nature of sports: Reporters will cover both extremes. We don’t enjoy having to write about certain struggles or the firing of a coach, but we realize it’s part of the job.
At the end of the day, we here at the P&D will cover it and will try to dig deeper into those issues through these Daily Doses, through blog entries and through Twitter posts. We’ll ask those questions.
Our recent 3-part series on the Class 11AA high school football divide has produced a number of comments — both positive and critical. That’s what we want to see. The series, at its core, was meant to state facts and provide a wide array of quotes to help connect the dots.
The only thing we ask, though, is: What did you like about the series? What did you dislike? Do you have specific concerns? Emails and social media posts that read “I liked the series” or “I’ve heard a lot of negative feedback” don’t help us one bit. Again, specifics help us.
If you have questions or comments, or even suggestions, on our coverage, feel free to contact us directly. Our phone number is 665-7811 (the sports extension is 106), our email is firstname.lastname@example.org, and each one of our sports reporters is on Twitter.
We’re here for you. We want to hear from you.
