Front page for breast cancer:
Black and white and pink all over
Black and white and pink all over.
The Huntsville Times launched a month full of coverage about breast cancer with this special pink Front Page.
In a day when newspapers are trying to be all things to all people, often afraid to take risks, this is a bold move.
Congrats to the editors in Huntsville for making such a strong statement.
Here's a note from the paper's editor Kevin Wendt who explains why they are printing pink papers.
"Every day in October," Wendt says, "we will tell the story of a cancer survivor, beginning today with Liz Hurley on the front page. And throughout the month, we will report on the many aspects of the disease, medical and emotional."
And they are collecting the stories online at the Think Pink Page.
Nice job, Huntsville.
