Flathead Beacon

Founded in 2007 and based in historic downtown Kalispell, the Flathead Beacon is an award-winning newspaper devoted to delivering thought-provoking journalism and commentary to Northwest Montana. Printed weekly and updated daily at flatheadbeacon.com, the Beacon encourages its readers to participate in discussions about their valley.

The Montana Newspaper Association has named the Flathead Beacon the state’s best large weekly six times since 2009 and the best website four times while also frequently recognizing the publication’s advertising and design excellence. The Columbia Journalism Review highlighted the newspaper and its tradition of excellence in a 2016 feature titled, “Why a Weekly Tabloid Owned by Maury Povich Might Have ‘The Best Newsroom in Montana.’” In 2014, Outside Magazine named the Flathead Beacon one of the “Best Places to Work” in the U.S.

As an active member of the community, the Flathead Beacon sponsors local events, supports numerous nonprofits through its foundation and leads a running club that hosts group runs and helps organize races.
