In 1969, the Society of Professional Journalists Colorado Pro Chapter designated the Silverton Standard & the Miner as a State Historic Site in Journalism.
The only other SPJ National Historic Site in Journalism in Colorado is the Denver Press Club, which received the designation in 2007.
“Silverton Saves Its Newspaper,” a video documentary produced in 2009 by former Rocky Mountain News photographer Sonya Doctorian, can be seen on the AARP Bulletin Today website and on YouTube.
Standard Editor Mark Esper, who has won a number of journalism awards since being named the newspaper’s editor in 2007, displays a healthy sense of humor. Each issue of the Standard & the Miner has a subscription form with the explanation that “Death notices for delinquent subscribers will not be inserted.” The statement is from the Jan. 5, 1901, Gladstone Kibosh.
On TV
NBC’s “Today Show” plans to run a story about the Silverton Standard & the Miner in its “American Story” feature tentatively scheduled to air Friday morning. The American Story feature typically airs in the later part of the 8 a.m. hour segment.
