Description

Lloyd Schermer tells a story about how shortly after Lee Newspapers bought the Missoulian and he moved to Missoula, an earthquake occurred in Yellowstone National Park. He recalls having to prod the Missoulian reporters to make the earthquake story a top priority, which resulted in a better piece than what the Associated Press [AP] wrote.
