    Does anyone know if the newspaper is the Times Daily or the TimesDaily? Thanks in advance.

    I a lot less time that it took you to type your post. I googled and found out the newspaper is the Times Daily but the website is timesdaily.com

    This is one reason sportswriting is so bad [/crossthread] ... lazy reporters.

    Not to get pissy, but the reason I asked the question is because I DID google it. There are multiple references to it as "Times Daily" as well as "TimesDaily." While it certainly seemed like the consensus was two words, there was enough reference to it as "TimesDaily," not to mention it being written as one word in the copy I am looking at right now, to make me question that.

    I posted this here because it seems like a good place to get it right from someone with direct knowledge of the paper.

    I'm not a reporter, and I'm not lazy. I'm interested in getting my facts right. Sorry.

    The references to TimesDaily (no space) were overwhelmingly website references.
    ABC listing is Times Daily

    Their house style is TimesDaily, one word. Now that they're not paying me, I would make it two words, as God intended.

    One word on the masthead. Good enough for me. (And no city name in the title.)

    On a tangent, does the Decatur Daily still use "the DAILY" in stories when referencing itself?

    Because "the DAILY" looks more important than "the Daily?"

    And it is TimesDaily, as God intended.

    Let's ask Stewart Cink. Whatever he says goes.
