The bustling, deadline environment; voices raised across the cubicles or hushed in corner groupings of gossip or story deliberation. The busier the newsroom the greater the sense of calm and belonging journalists feel there. And while no longer smoky, and in some cases without police squawk boxes or photo desks, just the feeling one gets when encountering rows of journalists hard at work on today or tomorrow’s news invokes a secure feeling of being at the center of something.
