Podcast: Flathead Living Summer Issue Preview

Flathead Living editor Myers Reece discusses the quarterly magazine's evolution and highlights from the upcoming summer issue

By Micah Drew

Dig even deeper into the biggest stories of the last seven days with the Beacon’s weekly podcast.

This week:

In 2013, the Flathead Beacon expanded its presence beyond the weekly newspaper when the company purchased Flathead Living, a glossy quarterly magazine. The magazine allows staff writers to expand their writing prowess with feature stories from around Northwest Montana, while also giving opportunities to a talented group of freelance writers and photographers. The seasonal publication is free, just like the weekly paper, and the summer edition of Flathead Living will hit stands in the near future.

This week, Flathead Living Managing Editor Myers Reece sat down with host Micah Drew to reminisce about the early years of putting out the magazine, discuss the process of outlining more than 100 pages of content and preview some of his favorite pieces in the upcoming summer issue, one of which is the cover story in this week’s Beacon.

Later, Micah runs through the biggest stories from the last seven days, including a proposal to boost radio and cellphone service in Glacier National Park, resistance to President Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management and a collaborative program between Columbia Falls High School and Glacier National Park to give students construction experience by building employee housing.
