The Newsroom Blog

Welcome to the Newsroom Blog

The Public Affairs Department is pleased to announce the launch of the Newsroom Blog today with this first blog post. For nearly 10 years, Newsroom.lds.org has provided official news and information for journalists, opinion leaders and the public, and it will continue to do so. The purpose of this blog is to supplement the Newsroom Web site with additional stories from the Church that may not lend themselves to a news release, and to provide additional context and background on stories that appear in the news media.

You may notice a different, more conversational tone on this blog than you would see in official news releases on the Newsroom Web site. This blog will be managed and written by staff of the Public Affairs Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The information here will be reliable and accurate but should not necessarily be viewed as official statements from the Church. The purpose of this blog is to provide journalists, bloggers and the public with additional context and information regarding public issues and news stories involving the Church.

If you have comments or questions, please send them to mediafeedback@ldschurch.org. We may post on the blog some of the responses that we receive by e-mail. We look forward to our discussions as this blog helps to tell the story of the Church and explain public issues related to it.
