The Duluth News Tribune marked 150 years of reporting last week with a community celebration at Glensheen.
The event ran parallel to Glensheen’s current “Reporting Duluth” exhibit, which features large-scale News Tribune photographs of important moments in history.
“It is inspiring to consider that what we do every day started 150 years ago, in Duluth’s infancy,” Editor Rick Lubbers said, after thanking employees of the News Tribune and Forum Communications for their work over the decades.
“We also want to thank our readers, past and present, for their loyalty and trust,” he continued. “Newspaper journalism wouldn’t have lasted 150 days, let alone 150 years, without them. For us it is an honor and a privilege to work as their local daily newspaper.”
The “Reporting Duluth” exhibit continues through June 2 in Glensheen’s Winter Garden.
