Behind the Scenes

Wed., March 29, 2017, 3:00-4:30 PM

The Cap Times
1901 Fish Hatchery Rd., Madison, WI 53713 (map)

In 2017, the DMI Behind the Scenes series is going to highlight locations all celebrating 100th anniversaries with the first program featuring the Cap Times. The Cap Times and the Wisconsin State Journal have occupied the same building on Fish Hatchery Road since 1975 in a business partnership that dates to the late 1940s. A lot has changed since they moved from the Capitol Square. The Cap Times celebrates its 100th anniversary this year and remains true to founder William T. Evjue’s mission of championing progressive causes and the interests of regular people.

Today, as a digital-first media company with a weekly tabloid newspaper, the Cap Times is built on independent, accurate and enterprising reporting, experienced voices providing progressive opinion, and a deep commitment to philanthropy, making Madison a better place to live. Join us for a special behind-the-scenes program to hear about the evolving media business and meet some of the people who make the Cap Times what it is. Attendees will also get a building tour to see the newspaper’s production areas, including its massive presses!

Given the high demand to attend DMI Behind the Scenes and only a limited number of spots available, a random drawing was conducted to select attendees for this event. The entry period for the drawing is now closed and the event has reached capacity. If you would like to be added to the event waiting list, please send your request to DMI at or (608) 512-1331. Otherwise thank you for your interest in attending and we hope to see you at another DMI program soon! This event is open to DMI members only.
