This year the Juneau Empire will be providing minute-to-minute updates from the waters of the Golden North Salmon Derby. Through the Empire's Twitter and Facebook pages as well as at juneauempire.com you'll be able to have instant updates on who's caught what, how big it is and how it all went down. "Twitter will provide readers with a way to know what's going on out on the water whether they are a participant or a spectator," Managing Editor Charles Westmoreland said. Westmoreland also encourages Derby participants to call the Empire with their own updates.
The Empire will have a boat out on the water staffed with reporters from both the Juneau Empire and the Capital City Weekly.
