Publisher of the Year

2017 Publisher of the Year

We encourage staff, peers and executives to nominate candidates.

The accelerating pace of change in today’s information age requires a greater need for effective leadership. A successful newspaper leader must strategize from the trenches with practicality and realism, but think with foresight and imagination.

We are looking to honor a publisher who has risen above the rest and accomplished what seems like the impossible, outmaneuvering the competition, outthinking the future and maintaining profitability.

We are seeking your assistance in recognizing a leader with business acumen, technical savvy, and a deep understanding of what needs to be done to stay successful — along with the fortitude and tenacity to implement change.


  • “Publisher of the Year” recognition is open to all newspaper publishers worldwide, from papers large and small.
  • All entries will be treated with the strictest confidence. But the selected publisher should be prepared to be interviewed by Editor & Publisher for the special “Publisher of the Year” issue.
