DULUTH, Minn. – The Duluth (Minn.) News Tribune was the third Forum Communications Co. newspaper in recent weeks to be recognized for a front-page newspaper design, being featured as one of Newseum’s “Top Ten Front Pages” today on its website.
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 they like the best 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 is “Power Players.”
In her post regarding today’s honored selections, Sonya Gavanker wrote: “Summer brings out the politicians at state fairs and meet-and-greets. Today, we highlight papers that show politicians. Some are resigning. Some are striding the halls of power. One is even scaling tall buildings. Our favorite is the (Washington, D.C.) Express, with its collage of those at the height of political power, and the recent book that uncovers them.”
The News Tribune, The Forum and The Pioneer are all 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, and commercial printing plants in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
