Yesterday was election night. Check out the results for the Valley’s elections here.
For journalists, that means a late-night shift including the newsroom staple: the election night pizza.
Pizza is cheap, most people like it and low-paid journalists will do just about anything for free food.
The Daily Item had them, and so did a lot of other newsrooms, as evidenced by tweets coming out of newsrooms from across the state. Here’s just a small sample.

Made it through my first election night, it was a lot of fun. Everyone showed great teamwork tonight. It might’ve been the pizza 🙂
