Minot Daily News... Keep On Printing!

DON'T Hold the Presses!

News paper

It was just announced that the two largest newspapers in North Dakota are going to cut back on the number of days they issue a printed publication. Gone are Monday and Friday's additions due to lack of revenue caused by advertisers withdrawing during the Corona virus pandemic.

I love the newspaper, it has been part of my life since I was about 10 years old and delivered "The Midweek" (an advertising rag in Fargo/Moorhead) and Grit Newspaper. The Minot Daily news is not joining in on this cutback... yet. However we did recently lose our Sunday edition (not related to the virus).

If you are a local I hope you will support The Minot Daily News and encourage them to keep the presses rolling.
