FARGO, N.D. – The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead was lauded for its front-page newspaper design today, being featured as one of Newseum’s “Top Ten Front Pages” of the day.
Newseum is a 250,000-square-foot museum about news. The institution “offers visitors an experience that blends five centuries of news history with up-to-the-second technology and hands-on exhibits” in its Washington, D.C., facility, according to its website. It sits adjacent to the Smithsonian museums on the National Mall.
Each day on its website, the institution picks the front pages from among the nation’s hundreds of daily newspapers. They feature the front pages on a post called “Today’s Top Ten Front Pages.” Generally the post follows a theme, and the theme from today’s Top Ten list was “Structural Integrity.”
In her post, Libby Bawcombe writes “Construction projects of all varieties built up the front pages today. While the crisscross supports of an oil platform and a concert venue are impressive, The Gazette in Colorado Springs featured the assembly of a work of public art. The Tribune-Review featured a tragic incident that swept Philadelphia’s front pages — a building demolition accident that resulted in six casualties and many injuries.”
The Forum is owned by Forum Communications Co. Forum Communications is a multimedia information company based in Fargo, and owns dozens of newspapers, websites and television and radio stations in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
