About Us

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. The Beacon is printed weekly and updated daily at flatheadbeacon.com.

The Montana Newspaper Association perennially names the Beacon the state’s best large weekly, while also regularly recognizing the publication’s advertising, design and website excellence. The Columbia Journalism Review highlighted the paper for having the “best newsroom in Montana” in a 2016 feature, and in 2014, Outside Magazine named the Beacon one of the “Best Places to Work” in the U.S.

As an active member of the community, the Beacon sponsors local events and supports numerous nonprofits through its foundation.

Flathead Beacon Productions also publishes Flathead Living, an award-winning quarterly lifestyle magazine. In 2016, the media company debuted Glacier Journal, an annual magazine and guidebook devoted to the Crown Jewel of the Continent.
