Get a jump on the news with Advance Notice

A new weekly email and Medium newsletter published by the Breaking News editorial team

For the last couple years, Breaking News has published an internal email with guidance on what news to expect in the week ahead. Much more than a news calendar, it draws on dozens of sources to give our editors a jump on upcoming stories. It provides key background on what to watch for, as well as useful social media sources on the ground.

It’s a terrific resource that’s helped our team react faster to the news, and it dawned on us the other day that we should make it available to everyone.

So we gave it a name, Advance Notice, and we’re launching it as a weekly email (sign up free) and Medium newsletter (follow here). We’ve also created a Twitter account, @advancenotice, that will provide occasional guidance for upcoming news and events.

While we can’t predict the news, this might be the next best thing.

The first newsletter goes out next week, and please don’t hesitate to drop us a note with any feedback along the way.
