Forum News Service is a regional news wire provider offering comprehensive coverage throughout the Upper Midwest, from the oilfields of western North Dakota to the Great Lakes of Minnesota. The news service gathers the majority of its content from more than 30 newspapers, websites and TV stations owned by Forum Communications Co. We then edit and re-distribute that content for sale to other regional media outlets. Additionally, the news service has its own team of award-winning reporters in Bismarck, N.D., Williston, N.D., and in St. Paul, Minn., covering a wide variety of regional and statewide-interest stories. Our experienced editing team is based at the Forum News Service headquarters in Fargo, N.D.

Guided by the founding values of Forum Communications Co. - integrity, respect, responsibility - our aim is to offer a wide range of news and features from around North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin, as well as multimedia options you won't find anywhere else. At Forum News Service we value strong journalism and are committed to providing quality content to readers each day. We also value innovation and can help your newspaper and website remain relevant despite the ever-changing media landscape.

Our coverage encompasses news, sports, business, agriculture, outdoors, columns, photos and graphics, as well as features and lifestyle stories. We also offer a number of specialty wires such as food, family, outdoors, agriculture and oil/energy. We use a simple, yet sophisticated, web-based platform to deliver the content and have staff members on hand seven days a week to assist you.
