Innovation is key to any business that hopes to not only survive, but thrive in any economic condition.
At the Lincoln Parish Journal, we are always looking for new and unique ways to conduct our mission: to bring Lincoln Parish residents non-biased and fact-based news nearly everyday of the week completely free of charge.
That’s why this summer, we elected to start a weekly podcast series with our local high school coaches during football season. Our heart was to try something new by offering an eight to fifteen minute audio update straight from each head coach. Through the learning process, we now know that coordinating schedules, recording, mastering, and producing all take valuable time and energy.
And part of innovating is assessing results and figuring out if something new is worth continuing. We’ve recently learned that’s not always the case.
So, in full transparency, we recognize that these podcasts did not yield the results that we had hoped, and so, we will no longer have our weekly “This Week In” high school football podcasts. This will give all of us more time to seek out and write stories about Lincoln Parish from here. It’s a way for us to make sure we are giving our very best to you.
We want to say a special thanks to Ruston head coach Jerrod Baugh, Lincoln Prep head coach Glen Hall, and Cedar Creek head coach Matt Middleton. Each week, they were prompt, gracious, and willing to work with us, despite the demands during the week to run their respective programs.
And to you, the reader: thank you again for your support by reading and sharing our content. Without you, there is no Lincoln Parish Journal.
