The Inlander this week marks its 20th anniversary with a commemorative 104-page issue, looking back at its founding, its growth and its position as the top media in the region, with the No. 1 market penetration of any urban weekly in America.
â€œI believe our success reflects the vitality of our city and region,â€ says founder and publisher Ted S. McGregor Jr. â€œEveryone can take credit for our thriving newspaper. We owe great thanks to our staff â€” past and present â€” along with our readers and our advertisers.â€
The paper is also launching a new website this week with streamlined design, more ways to share content and a platform that delivers everything to your phone, tablet and desktop. The site was developed by Foundation and features an intuitive structure, an easy-to-use back end and horizontal-swipe navigation on tablets.
â€œYou dream it, and Foundation will build it,â€ says editor Jacob H. Fries. â€œWeâ€™ve been impressed with Foundationâ€™s team â€” Carla, Jason, Ian, Gontran and others â€” who have delivered a powerful website. Not to brag, but we think itâ€™s one of the more beautiful news sites out there.â€
