News alerts and push notifications regularly draw questions from readers. So I sat down with Eric Bishop and Michael Owen from the news desk at The Times to answer some of my questions — and hopefully yours — about how the newsroom approaches this area. Last month, The Times announced it was dividing its email alerts into two channels: Breaking News gives readers developing stories as they happen; and Top Stories gives subscribers breaking news plus special reports, investigative stories or live events in sports or politics if The Times deems them important. Soon, subscribers to mobile push notifications will get the same choice.
