Mary Lahammer and David Gillette of ‘Almanac’ will appear on MinnPost

Regular watchers of “Almanac” on Twin Cities Public Television (TPT) are familiar with political reporter Mary Lahammer and commentator David Gillette.

Now, Mary’s blog and David’s illustrated essays will appear regularly on

Mary’s daily blog about politics at the Capitol will have its latest headline featured on MinnPost’s home page, just below DC Dispatches by our Washington correspondent, Derek Wallbank. David’s essays, which appear at least monthly and more often during the legislative session, will appear as stories in the center section of the home page.

As part of our partnership with public television, you’ll notice that on the inside pages where Mary’s and David’s pieces appear there will be a widget promoting upcoming programming on TPT stations.

Mary and David are award-winning journalists with great skill and style. You can read Mary’s full bio here and David’s here. Even better, watch his illustrated essay about himself.

David recently reported in his unique style from the climate conference in Copenhagen, a joint project of MinnPost and TPT. You can see his essays from Copenhagen here.

We are excited to welcome Mary and David to the MinnPost family.

Readers of MinnPost are familiar with Hugh Bennewitz’s stylized drawings of our journalists, and Hugh has drawn one for Mary. David, of course, drew his own.
