Transcript the daily grind LISA CHMIOLA Daily Cougar Sports Editor, James Beltran and Production staff member, Lisa Chmiola work-away as they attempt to beat their next deadline. The Daily Cougar is the official newspaper of the University of Houston. Photo by Conrad Turner "It takes a lot of balancing your time," Amit Bhat 194 March Every day, thousands of University of Houston students pick up a copy of The Daily Cougar on their way to class. But perhaps no more than 100 students could tell you what goes on to get those papers in the racks — those on the Cougar's staff. Some of the first people in the Cougar offices in the morning are the advertising representatives, those responsible for selling space to advertisers for each issue. During a typical day, ad reps return phone calls on their accounts, make calls to entice potential advertisers, plus make sure the proper paperwork for each ad is turned in to the Student Publications business office and production staffs, to handle payment and ad design, respectively. "It takes a lot of balancing your time," said Amit Bhat, student advertising manager, who is responsible for helping Advertising Manager Loida Casares Ruiz oversee the ad reps and make sure all runs smoothly in the ad office. Meanwhile, the editorial office of the Cougar has begun buzzing. Reporters are conducting phone interviews, photographers are developing their film and editors are making sure all the elements will be completed to fit their layouts. "Designing my section pages is something people don't realize that I do," said Campus News Editor Jim Parsons, who has been a member of the Cougar staff for two years. In addition to designing layouts, Parsons is also responsible for compiling the Campus Spotlight and assigning section stories to writers. Perhaps one of the hardest tasks for Cougar reporters to accomplish is "getting administrators to call you back," said Corin Hoggard, a reporter who writes for the campus section. Late in the afternoon, copy editors enter the office and begin scrutinizing articles for errors, as the production staff is completing ad designs. But the busiest time for production staffers is the night shift, when the layouts are entered to the computer to ready the paper for printing. "It's definitely a job for computer lovers," said Jennifer Ruisaard, student production manager, who is in charge of the production staff. "I spend many hours sitting in front of a computer," she adds. A handful of Cougar staff members stay late into the night to finish preparing the paper for its 12:30 a.m. printing plant deadline. So why would anyone put themselves through such long and crazy hours of work? Experience. "The pay isn't great, but the experience gained in the job outweighs that," Ruisaard said. "(With) my time working here and my experience gained, I'm probably insured a job (after graduation) anywhere in the pre-press industry." The Daily Cougar 195
