Indy | A single photo tells a tragedy's story

A six-column photo below a shrunken nameplate dominates The Indianapolis Star's front page this morning, as the paper continues its coverage of Saturday's stage collapse at the state fair, where five people were killed and 45 others were injured.

Here's yesterday's front page, where print coverage started:

The Star's circulation: weekdays, 176,232; Sundays, 272,798, according to ABC's lookup database.

  1. Those circ numbers really jump out at you from where they were only several years ago.


Jim says: "Proceed with caution; this is a free-for-all comment zone. I try to correct or clarify incorrect information. But I can't catch everything. Please keep your posts focused on Gannett and media-related subjects. Note that I occasionally review comments in advance, to reject inappropriate ones. And I ignore hostile posters, and recommend you do, too."
