News Media

Big Fish Works has a long history of producing award-winning newspapers throughout the state of Minnesota. Our mission statement says it all: “Great people. Growing communities through communication.”

The concentration on local content – some would call it an obsession – has not distracted the company from the most up-to-date and efficient methods of distribution, whether it be electronics or print. There’s a continuing strong belief in the durability of a printed local newspaper paired with the immediacy of web and digital offerings. To boil it down: Local information is our bread and butter. It doesn’t matter how it gets to the user.

Big Fish Works editors and reporters are diligent about being the #1 source of news and information in these communities across the State of Minnesota.
