Editorial: We’re switching to online only during cononavirus crisis
For 61 years, The Lookout has published a print newspaper for LCC and the Lansing community.
When many newspapers switched from print to online, we remained grounded in our roots.
Student journalists at LCC have worked hard from one year to the next to produce a full-color, 16-page newspaper.
Now, due to the coronavirus, LCC has moved to a fully online, remote environment, effective Wednesday, March 18.
Many employees around the country will lose their jobs as the world quarantines within their homes. Many business operations will be suspended during this time, unless the business can evolve.
With heavy hearts, our newspaper staff will officially move to purely online and social media content, effective immediately, and likely for the remainder of the academic year.
We are fortunate that we still have jobs, and will strive to do our best to keep you informed and entertained in this unprecedented time of crisis and quarantining.
This is not a goodbye to our print edition, or to our readership. This is our chance to say we’ll meet again and, in the meantime we hope you enjoy and embrace our online publication.
Our online newspaper is the
perfect in-home activity to help simulate your mind and keep you informed on
relevant LCC topics from a reliable source.
The Lookout will post new content almost every weekday during this time of crisis at www.lcc.edu/lookout.
Please stick with us as we adjust to this unique situation.
