We can call this a tradition now, right? On Wednesday, the newsroom of The (Charleston, South Carolina) Post and Courier was treated to a pizza lunch from the newsroom of The Baltimore Sun. The Post and Courier’s executive editor tweeted his thanks.

And the Sun’s executive editor tweeted a “you’re welcome.”

In April, the Sun newsroom was treated to pizza from the Boston Globe.

“We’re looking on from here in deep admiration and empathy for what your newsroom is doing. You’re really doing extraordinary work. Our people would like to send your people some sort of gesture of support,” the Globe’s Editor Brian McGrory wrote in an email to the Sun’s Trif Alatzas.

In April of 2013, the Globe newsroom was treated to pizzas from the Chicago Tribune.

“We can’t buy you lost sleep, so at least let us pick up lunch,” a note from the Tribune’s newsroom says. Boston Globe Magazine writer Scott Helman confirms to Poynter the lunch in question is pizza from Regina Pizzeria.
