Inlander and Spokane's evolution featured in latest UW alumni magazine

Posted By on Fri, Sep 15, 2017 at 11:58 AM


Do you read the Inlander every week? Of course you do!

Do you know the story of how Spokane's weekly paper, nearly a quarter-century old, came to be? Probably not, despite the existence of this handy "Who We Are" page on Inlander.com and this slick video:


Now the story of how Ted and Jer McGregor got the paper off the ground has been told by the University of Washington alumni magazine Columns. And while there are a lot of great details about the evolution of Spokane along with that of the paper, we particularly liked what Tim Egan, a Pulitzer Prize winner and former coworker of Ted McGregor, had to say:

“I was so impressed by the way Ted took what he learned in graduate school and then applied it to Spokane, and made a great success of it,” says Egan, his old friend from The New York Times. “Ted is an original thinker, a great voice for Spokane and beyond. His paper has meant a lot for people looking for fresh ideas east of the Cascades.”

We certainly concur. You can read the story from UW's Columns alumni magazine right here.
