Andy Malby, the editor of the Belgrade News, and his wife, Lori (in the photo), are the new owners/publishers of the Three Forks Herald, a weekly newspaper. Three Forks is also located in Gallatin County, Montana.
Here's his announcement.
Andy is the quintessential, hands-on smalltown editor who snaps photos, writes the front page stories, does the layout, appreciates the advertisers, manages a couple of other reporters, and still makes space for a lively editorial page that features views that often transcend the concerns of his corner of the world.
I'm happy that Andy will have the opportunity to fulfill a longtime dream with this entrepreneurial move, but will miss him as editor of the BN.
