THE CALIFORNIAN WINS 1992 GENERAL EXCELLENCE AWARD IN STATE COMPETITION

 TEMECULA, Calif., Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Californian won the General Excellence Award in the 10,001-to-25,000 circulation dailies category of the 1992 Better Newspapers competition sponsored by the California Newspaper Publishers Association.
 The competition is the only statewide newspaper contest in California. The newspaper also won first-place awards for columns, commentary or criticism and for layout and presentation. It won second- place awards for spot news reporting, lifestyle coverage and sports photography.
 Editor James Folmer said: "We emphasize local coverage in every section of the newspaper, while still delivering to our readers complete national coverage."
 The Californian, in only its second full year of daily publication, is the youngest daily ever to win a CNPA General Excellence Award.
 "These awards recognize the vitality and quality of an excellent news product," said John Madigan, president of Tribune Newspaper Company. "They show how far The Californian has come in so short a time."
 The Californian, which covers Temecula, Murrieta and other communities in southwest Riverside County, converted to daily from tri- weekly publication in June 1990. In 1992, The Californian was the fastest-growing daily newspaper in the state. The Audit Bureau of Circulations reported year-over-year increases of 14.6 percent daily and 15.3 percent Sunday for the six months ending in September 1992. Paid circulation is now nearly 12,000.
 The Californian was a weekly when acquired in 1988 by Times Advocate Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tribune Newspaper Company. The Times Advocate newspaper, based in Escondido, won the General Excellence Award in its circulation category in 1982.
 Tribune Newspaper Company publishes five other daily newspapers and syndicates information and marketing services. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Tribune Company, a leading provider of information and entertainment. Tribune owns seven television stations, six radio stations, produces and syndicates information and entertainment, and has an interest in one of Canada's largest newsprint manufacturers.
