Help us name the Register's new mobile news van
We’re about to go on a roll at the Register.
Plans are under way for us to outfit a van as a mobile newsroom, which we can bring to breaking news events, football games, town fairs, anywhere. And we need a name for our rolling force of nature.
The van will have wifi, tables and chairs, maybe a coffee pot. Everything a roving journalist needs. You’ll be able to join us under the awning to talk to me or one of our reporters about how the Register is doing in covering your community, to get help setting up your own blog or to share a story idea.
|The Register's mobile newsroom will be outfitted with wifi and a generator.|
But we haven’t had a good way for you to sit down with us, to talk about how you think we’ve done, what you’d like to see us covering.
Once our van gets rolling, we’ll be able to park, put out the awning and set up shop on the go.
They’ve done this at our sister paper, the Pioneer Press in St. Paul, Minn.. They call their van TC Rover. You can see photos of the van and its team at the Minnesota Vikings training camp in Mankato.
We’ll be outfitting the van in the next month, but to really get moving, we need a snappy name. Register on the Road? (Too much like Jack Kerouac.) Register Roadshow? Vincent? Then again, you probably have a better idea. Let us know! Give us a name … or five. Send your nominations—no limit—to email@example.com, or post them in the comments section below.
And we’ll see you on the road soon.
