VERMILLION | A memorial service for USA Today founder Al Neuharth will be held at the University of South Dakota on May 17.

Neuharth, who also founded the Freedom Forum and the Newseum, died April 19 in his Cocoa Beach, Fla., home from complications of a fall.

The service will be at 10 a.m. in the Slagle Hall auditorium. A reception and luncheon, also open to the public, will follow at the Al Neuharth Media Center, located nearby on the campus.

The family is planning a private burial in Neuharth's hometown of Eureka, S.D., sometime later this spring.

During Neuharth's more than 15 years at the helm of Gannett, the company became the nation's largest newspaper company.
