Lee Honors Arizona Daily Star As Enterprise Of The Year

Lee Enterprises, Incorporated (NYSE:LEE) announced today that the Arizona Daily Star is being honored as 2013 Enterprise of the Year.

“Publisher John Humenik and his team delivered amazing results across the board,” said Mary Junck, Lee chairman and chief executive officer. “They drove double-digit digital growth, double-digit growth in cash flow, double-digit growth in Sunday circulation units and mobile audience numbers that fly off the charts. As always, they also produced an endless stream of outstanding journalism, from human interest stories that touch the heart to investigative journalism that helps make the community stronger.”

Kevin Mowbray, Lee vice president and chief operating officer, added: “The Tucson team delivered on every top Lee initiative – and they shared their own impressive successes across the company. As an example, they’re leading the way in gaining more grocery advertising and they’ve set a high bar for growing preprints. Their Thanksgiving Day paper this year will include 70 local preprints.”

The Arizona Daily Star also received 2013 President’s Awards for both News and Innovation – for a series on Tucson children in poverty and for a captivating promotion, Pizza Madness. This is the second year in a row that the Arizona Daily Star has been a finalist for Enterprise of the Year.

Lee owns the Arizona Daily Star, and its business operations are owned jointly with Gannett Co., Inc. (NYSE: GCI). The web address is azstarnet.com.
