Hot Off the Press: Montgomery Advertiser

In this new feature, I’m occasionally spotlighting Gannett newspaper front pages in print, drawn randomly from the Newseum‘s collection. This is today’s Montgomery Advertiser, which is very heavy on graphics; click on the image for a bigger view.

Basically, it’s a one-story front built around “The Wars They Fought” package. I like it! It took me a long time to come around to this, but I like front pages with big visuals pointing to good stuff inside.

The Advertiser at a glance:

  • Publisher: Scott M. Brown
  • Executive Editor: Wanda Lloyd
  • Founded: 1829
  • Joined Gannett: 1995
  • Employees: 375
  • Circulation: 49,789 morning; 59,413 Sunday

A question for you: How often does your newspaper have a one-story front? E-mail Gannett Blog, or comment below.
