Description UTAH'S SIX SURVIVING DAILIES Paul Challis, Brent Goodie and Dan Beringer. During Hogun's tenure revenues and profits more than doubled between 1985 and 1993. He also was instrumental in initiating The Spectrum 10K Run late in each winter in co-sponsorship with the St. George Leisure Services Department. Hogun also expanded the newspaper's market into Sevier and Wayne counties with a bureau in Richfield. In 1986, the publication became a true daily when it began producing a Saturday morning edition. Since that time the Spectrum has published evening editions each weekday afternoon and morning editions on Saturday and Sunday. The Spectrum entered a new phase of its history in 1993, beginning with Janet Fontenot becoming managing editor in January and continuing with Hogun's resignation in May. That same month, Roger D. Plothow was named publisher. He took over full-time duties in August but spent a great deal of time with the newspaper through that summer while completing his duties as executive editor of the Idaho Falls, Idaho Post-Register. Several individuals from Thomson's corporate offices acted as interim publishers during periods of Plothow's absence from May until August. Plothow had begun his journalism career with the Provo Daily Herald, had worked as a sports stringer for both the Deseret News and the Salt Lake Tribune, had edited California newspapers and in the late 1980s was assistant managing editor of the Ogden Standard-Examiner. The Spectrum has experienced rapid and dramatic change since these management shifts, reflecting the tremendous growth of the Southern Utah market and a new administrative philosophy at both the paper and its parent company. Fontenot, a Louisiana native who had previously served as managing editor of the Northwest Arkansas Times in Fayet-teville, succeeded Dan Beringer. She began making changes shortly after arriving, starting with a major redesign emphasizing simple, clean layout, more frequent use of graphics and full color on page one each day. 171
