Atlanta falcons lose to cincinnati bengals 37-36 georgia state university job board

In the aftermath of hurricane katrina, there was the powerful “‘HELP US, PLEASE’” over a gut-wrenching photo of a woman crying in the street outside the convention center. Georgia state university national ranking after super bowl XLIV, drew brees hoisted the lombardi trophy alongside a single exhilarating word: “AMEN.” that has to be the most framed T-P page ever.

No one in new orleans would want to frame it, but sunday, jan. 14, 2018 – for saints fans, a day that will live in infamy – demanded a similarly profound page-one exclamation point. So, around 8:30 sunday night, two hours after the vikings drove a dagger through the heart of the who dat nation, I checked in with senior editor and ace headline writer james karst.

James sent me the page proof that designer tim givens and print lab director jack browning produced: three “expletives” stacked one on top of the other.

Accompanying it, a classic shot from staff photographer michael democker of vikings receiver stefon diggs looking over his shoulder as he raced toward the goal line. In the foreground, two saints defenders watch helplessly at the scene of the crime, 15 yards away.

Director of print terry baquet, a former page one editor himself, agreed. I showed the page proof to a trusted focus group: my three sons, all diehard fans. Said one: “I just smiled for the first time since there were 10 seconds left in the game.”

According to twitter’s analytics, tim’s front-page tweet was viewed more than 1.4 million times, a number that does not include the number of views generated by the countless other people who shared it. (among them: a gif that helpfully replaced our “expletive” headline with actual expletives.)

“sportscenter” featured the times-picayune the next morning. Rachel maddow devoted a segment to it the next night. Georgia state university adress new orleans musician shamarr allen incorporated it into a post-game “do the sean payton” instagram video. An ESPN film crew flew to new orleans tuesday night and interviewed james, tim and terry in our newsroom wednesday. (that feature – the thrill of victory and agony of defeat, as reflected in the front pages of the new orleans and minneapolis newspapers – will air during “NFL countdown” around 12:40 p.M. Sunday on ESPN.)

If you add up the twitter, facebook and instagram followers who liked or shared it, the TV audiences for all the programs that featured it, and the congregation of the lord of life lutheran church in maple grove, minn., it is reasonable to conclude that the monday, jan. 15, 2018, front page of the times-picayune will be viewed by more people than any front page in our 181-year history.

These two statements are true of the times-picayune and every newspaper in america: we print and deliver fewer newspapers than we did a decade ago. And we can put our journalism in front of more people than we could 5, 10, 20 or 100 years ago. Our audience has never been larger and grows every year.

The numbers are staggering. Last month, 6.9 million unique visitors generated 58.5 million page views on NOLA.Com, bringing our total to 715 million page views in 2017. Georgia state university calendar 2014 our videos were viewed 5.1 million times on youtube and social media in december. The number of followers to our social media accounts inched toward 1.4 million.
