People, places, and events for today.
Today is National Broadcast Traffic Day. A little obscure to those who didn’t grow up in the broadcast industry, it’s a day to honor the professionals who determine what ads run when on the broadcast channels and stations along with when programming comes on (and goes off). One of the staffers at The Nightshift worked in broadcasting from a very early age (junior high school) and insisted that National Broadcast Traffic Day be our choice today, vs. National Jersey Day (celebrating football jerseys). We’re OK with that…..
The Nightshift publishes direct links to the world’s greatest English language newspapers to facilitate research and encourage understanding of the world’s events of the day. The links are below. You are strongly encouraged to visit the sites below for news, perspective, and information that is not readily available via mainstream American media. Also, please note that new sites and links are added on a regular basis. We’ve added the link to the NOAA to enable readers to track hurricanes, winter storms, and other weather events.
