“What does the Boston Herald, USA Today, Chicago Daily Herald and The Elsberry Democrat have in common? All were chosen as “10 Newspapers That Do It Right – 2012” by Editor & Publisher magazine.”
This was the lead in the May 2, issue of The Elsberry Democrat, highlighting their placement into such a prestigious category for the development and success of the Indians Sports Network (ISN).
“Of course this is a great recognition for this small town newspaper,” said General Manager Michael Short. “Anytime your name is mentioned along side some of the biggest newspapers in the country it is special.”
The ISN program started with the Elsberry Indians and Lady Indians 2011-2012 basketball season. The games are broadcast through The Elsberry Democrat website at On the home page is the ISN logo which takes listeners to a page where they can listen to the live game or listen to archived games.
