The Daily Press in D.C.

In Media on 9 Apr 2010 at 9:45 am

Last month, something cool happened. The Newseum, the world’s preeminent warehouse of artifacts from the news industry – posted a Montrose Daily Press on its window for all to see.

Seriously, it’s pretty neat. The Newseum posts a couple dozen representative daily newspapers every day and changes the display every time the sun comes up. A friend of Daily Press Managing Editor Billie Stanton noticed the paper on display and sent her a photo of someone reading it – right next to the Modesto Bee.

I love looking at the front pages sent to the Newseum. They are available online every day. There are a hundred good layout ideas there every day, just waiting for you to steal them.

Incidentally, you can upload your front page to the Newseum Web site, just as the Daily Press does. There are a number of requirements – you have to publish at least five days a week and agree to send them a pdf of your front page by 5 a.m. each day, among other things…

If you are interested, e-mail Emily Hedges, assistant editor/exhibit development at the Newseum, ehedges@newseum.org.


  1. WAY TO GO WOODY! Montrose Daily Press is an inspiration and example of good journalism.
