Word of Ted Kennedy’s death broke around 2 a.m. — too late for most of the Boston Herald’s print run. A friend of Media Nation reports that Kennedy is not on the front page in the news boxes he’s seen around the area.
Of course, the Herald rectifies that online. Presumably the boxes are being restocked as I write this.
Meanwhile, what is up with the folks who put together the mobile edition of Boston.com? It’s almost 9:30 a.m., and there’s not one word about Kennedy’s death on the front page of mobile.boston.com. (I’ve saved the page here.) Nice picture of Jacoby Ellsbury, though.
I thought breaking news was automatically pushed to the site. I guess not.
Update: It’s now 11:15 a.m., and Kennedy stories are finally migrating to Boston.com’s mobile edition.
