Meet the Clarion: print shop manager Doug Munn

Starting as a carrier in 1990, Doug moved up to assistant circulation manager in 1993

Doug Munn’s roles with the Peninsula Clarion jump around over the course of nearly 30 years.

Currently, Doug serves as the general manager of Printer’s Ink and is responsible for the print shop and all its revenue.

Starting as a carrier in 1990, Doug moved up to assistant circulation manager in 1993, took time away from the Clarion to go to college, came back as a carrier until 2000. He moved up to circulation manager until 2005, when he moved to Minnesota.

“I moved back to Soldotna and once again was a carrier,” Doug said. “I moved back into the Clarion office in 2016 as circulation director for Morris Communication’s Alaska properties. I became manager of Printer’s Ink, our print shop, in March of 2018, to go along with being the circulation director. I am now the general manager of Printer’s Ink, and only assist in circulation as needed.”

Doug is originally from Robbinsdale, Minnesota and moved to Soldotna in 1990.

“Being from Minnesota, I love all things Minnesota, especially the sports teams. I follow all the teams, but especially the Minnesota Twins baseball team,” Doug said.

Since moving to Alaska, Doug has only spent a year Outside, but loves to travel. He has been to 46 out of the 50 states, with just Idaho, New Mexico, Louisiana and Hawaii left.

“My favorite memories are of my family and friends first visits to experience Alaska and their reactions. They are always in awe of everything up here,” Doug said.

Doug is married to his second wife, Kristen, has three children from his first marriage and two grandchildren.

“This summer my children and grandkids are coming up for an extended visit in June which will be a great way to spend the summer,” Doug said.

In his free time, Doug loves to read Louis L’Amour westerns, playing cards with friends and listening to all kinds of music.
