    I'm not sure this is where this thread belongs, but I'll leave it here and I know the moderators will move it if need be.

    My question is simple. What's the M-F deadline situation at major east coast newspapers (Boston Globe, Washington Post, NYTimes and Tabs)?

    A guy I used to work with did a copy editing/paginating tryout with one of the NYTabs before moving on to his current gig and the deadline info he was throwing out was shocking to me.

    Apparently they start putting the first edition to bed really early (like 6-ish), and then work on a second edition -- which hits most newstands -- and then they break for about two hours, go out to eat and such, before turning to a "late city" final, which very few newstands see.

    So, could anyone share deadline times with me?

    What's a deadline? :)

    I'd be interested as well. I understand that it's crazy early at some major metros for first edition.
