Our Week In The Web: December 4, 2015

This article is more than 3 years old.

News broke, in a big way this week, and we changed our originally scheduled programming on Thursday to bring you the latest news out of San Bernardino, CA. Did we do a good enough job letting you know on our website, social media feeds and on-air broadcast that our topic had changed? We're not sure. Based on the Facebook and Twitter traffic around the hour in question, we'd like to say that we did, but these are questions we have every time we switch topics. What works best for you when these kinds of things happen? We want to know — let us know in the comments below, or on Facebook, Tumblr@OnPointRadio or via email at onpointnpr AT gmail DOT com. (And we're aware that the medium you use to tell us will perhaps indicate your desired form of notification. Which in itself is helpful!)
