Notoriety with Left-Handed Edition

An Online Media campus webinar

Just for fun, the staff of the Custer County Chief opted to print a left-handed newspaper. It was hugely successful, a nice moneymaker and a great team builder. The product was viewed as a special edition with focus on front-page news, feature stories, sports and advertising- leaving only the public notices section. The Chief ended up on The Associated Press with the headline “McCaslin is a leftist” which prompted paper requests from around the world. The paper over printed in anticipation, and promptly sold out.
