This week we look back at the year’s top stories with Duluth News Tribune editor Rick Lubbers.

Some of the top stories that stick out are obvious ones like the allegations against U.S. Senator Al Franken and his resignation, or the October storm that destroyed the Lakewalk and other areas along the shores of Lake Superior, but others are more specific to each reporter.

Hear Christa, Tom and Brady each share their personal favorite, or most memorable, stories from 2017, while Rick shares the many changes the paper underwent this past year. What stories stuck out to you? Let us know at

What we are into this week: The Netflix series “Wormwood,” rewatching the HBO series “The Wire,” and of course “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
