A native of St. Cloud, McMillan studied liberal arts, journalism and business at the University of Minnesota.

He got his career start selling advertising at Minnesota newspapers in Minnetonka, Minneapolis and Cambridge. He later served 17 years as publisher of the Hutchinson Leader and several other publications, including Crow River Press.

Most recently, McMillan was publisher and part owner of MessAge Media, a newspaper group in the Mille Lacs area.

“I think Forum is viewed very highly among the newspaper industry in the region. It leads in so many ways, and so I’m really looking forward to joining the group,” McMillan said.

He said he sees his role as helping publishers and individual newspapers succeed, while also serving as a conduit to help them work well together.

Bill Marcil Jr., president of Forum Communications Co. and publisher of The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead, said he has been following McMillan’s career for almost 25 years.
