<i>Anchorage Daily News</i>
In 1946, just after the end of World War II, Norman Brown hand-set the type and hand-fed a Linotype press to roll out the first 16-page issue of the Anchorage News. Over the following decades, the publication changed its moniker to the Anchorage Daily News to account for its shift to daily delivery and stocked its trophy cabinet with two Pulitzer Prizes for Public Service, cementing its regard in the minds of Alaskans.
Today, the newspaper lands on more than 50,000 doorsteps each week. The freshly printed folds contain the latest local news, from political updates on the debate over offshore drilling to explanations of how the school system is developing a new math curriculum to help children count past 20 without using each other’s fingers and toes. The sports section keeps up with the Aces’ triumphs, whereas the outdoors pages cover the Iditarod and the latest goings-on at Denali National Park. Readers can also gain insight into the business world, challenge their outlooks with editorials, and peruse entertainment articles before deciding to go see a local improv group or movie.
