Former publisher of Daily Republic to lead ND paper
MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A former Forum Communications Co. executive has been named publisher of the Minot Daily News.
The Ogden Newspapers publication reports Steven McLister replaces Steve Herron, who had been publisher since May 2010.
McLister is a native of Cincinnati, Ohio. He began his Forum career with The Daily Republic in Mitchell and later was promoted to publisher in Willmar, Minn.
He was general manager of The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead from July 2000 to July 2007 and later was named to oversee the Forum’s Duluth News Group. In March 2009, The Forum named him vice president of newspapers, a position in which he supervised the publishers of Forum Communication’s 34 publications.
McLister says joining the Minot Daily News is an opportunity to return to a hands-on role in publishing.
