BISMARCK – North Dakota Tourism has already seen a boost of exposure from its new relationship with actor and Minot native Josh Duhamel, the agency’s director says.

The state’s tourism division said website traffic to NDtourism.com was up 290 percent within 24 hours of the Jan. 7 announcement that Duhamel, 41, would lend his voice to a new ad campaign. Of the 4,945 visitors that first day, 84 percent had never been to the website before.
