Steve McLister, publisher of the Duluth News-Tribune, will become vice president of newspapers for Forum Communications Company, based in

Fargo, N.D., in February. Forum owns members of the Rivertown Newspaper Group, including the Herald.

In his new role, McLister will be expected "to foster sales and internet initiatives as the company positions itself for industry changes in 2009 and beyond," according to a news release.

Forum has not yet named a succeeding publisher for the Duluth Newspaper

Group, but the search will begin immediately, and McLister said he plans to be involved.

Forum operates the Duluth Newspaper Group: a cluster including the News-Tribune, the Superior Telegram, Living North Magazine and the weekly Duluth Budgeteer News, Cloquet Pine Journal and Lake County News Chronicle in Two Harbors, Minn.
