Today is the BDN’s 130th anniversary, and we’d like to take a moment to look back at what we’ve shared together, and where we’re going.
A lot has changed in 130 years.
Maine’s population has doubled. I-95 transformed our economy and infrastructure. Today’s new Mainers are more likely to have grown up speaking Kinyarwanda, Swahili or Somali than French or Swedish. You’ll find more arguments about raising salmon on land than the best spot to fish for them. And you’re more likely to find someone reading the Bangor Daily News on their laptop or phone than ever.
