Have you ever wondered how the newspaper you’re reading was made?
At the Wapakoneta Daily News, two departments in particular are essential in creating the newspaper that lands on your doorstep six days a week: the composing department and the press room.
The composing department has many responsibilities, including laying out each page of the paper, creating advertisements to go on those pages and composing outside projects such as banners, brochures and fliers for various companies.
“I like to say the comp room is the hub of the building,” Wapakoneta Daily News Composing Supervisor Robert Darner said. “We’ve got our hands in a little bit of everything.”
