Editors across the U.S. struggled to capture the late-breaking news of President-elect Donald

Trump’s historic victory over Democrat Hilary Clinton in their print editions.

Some went late, some re-plated presses with an updated design and some, particularly on the west coast, benefitted from the Mountain and Pacific time zones.

Here’s a sampling of lead headlines on Trump’s win:
• Chattanooga (Tennessee) Times Free Press: White House bound!
• Knoxville (Tennessee) News Sentinel: TRUMP SURGES
• Montgomery (Alabama) Advertiser: BELIEVE IT
• Los Angeles (California) Daily News: HE’S HIRED!
• Los Angeles Times: STUNNING TRUMP WIN
• New York Post: PRESIDENT TRUMP?!
• The Philadelphia Inquirer: TRUMP WINS
• The Post-Crescent (Appleton, Wisconsin): SEISMIC SHIFT
• The Spokesman-Review (Spokane, Washington): NATION PLAYS TRUMP CARD
• Tampa Bay (Florida) Times: IT’S PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP
• The Seattle (Washington) Times: IT’S TRUMP
• The (Nashville) Tennessean: IT. JUST. WON’T. END.
