We'll be getting started with the office hours at 4 p.m. If you have questions you'd like to see answered, you can submit them ahead of time using the commenting tool here or email them to email@example.com.
OK, let's kick off this edition of newsroom office hours.
My name is Michael Becker, and I'm the city and online editor of the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.
The format of office hours is simple: We're here to answer questions you have about newsroom operations. We'll answer them as they come in.
Troy Carter here, I'm the reporter who covers county government and politics at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.
I have a story for those of you just watching - yesterday the Governor's office denied one of my freedom of information requests because they thought I was not a Montanan - the nerve!
I assume they thought I was from Boston because I use a FOIA processing service based there. Anyway, I appealed and gave them the number for the Gallatin Co. elections department so they could verify my voter registration status.
Daniel Hodun asks: "Any memorable stories from election weeks?"
Again, feel free to ask questions using the commenting feature at the top of the live blog box. We'll answer them the best we can.
Here's one for the AP style book - which North are reporters referencing when they write "north": grid north, true north, or magnetic north?
Troy is, of course, referring to the journalist's best friend and worst enemy: the Associated Press Stylebook, which provides recommendations on punctuation, spelling and such.
I see we have a few dozen watchers right now. Feel free to jump into the fray and drop us a question or comment using the "make a comment" button above these updates.
Hi all! I'm Rachel Hergett, the arts editor here at the Chronicle.
Rachel is responsible for our weekly entertainment magazine Get Out, which publishes Fridays.
In addition to asking us questions with the "Make a comment" link above, you can send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
10 minutes left. Be sure to get those questions in. Otherwise, you'll have to wait in suspense until next week.
The editors just finished the afternoon news meeting, where we decide what stories will go where in the print edition for tomorrow. It happens each day at 4:30.
OK, the hour's up. Thanks to all the followers and commenters this week. I'd also like to thank Whitney Bermes, Troy Carter and Rachel Hergett for turning out for the chat. We'll be live again next week for another session. In the meantime, submit your questions for the newsroom to email@example.com.
