Welcome to the new Bigfork Eagle.
After much thought, planning and effort we decided to bring the Eagle back into publication.
Readers of the old Eagle may notice an immediate difference in page size. Instead of the traditional broadsheet style of newspaper, we opted for a tabular format to give our readers a more portable version of the paper and our staff more flexibility with design.
News staffer Mackenzie Reiss has put a lot of effort into the design and weíre excited to present a fresh look and feel for our readership.
As things move forward, Mackenzie will continue to have oversight of the Eagle, but she wonít be working alone. The Eagle will feature contributions from other Daily Inter Lake staffers who have well over 100 years of combined journalism experience serving readers of the Flathead Valley. In fact, we have more folks in our newsrooms in Northwest Montana than any other news outlet in this part of the state, and it is our plan to put that experience to good use in the relaunch of the Eagle. At the forefront of that charge will be two of our department managers at the Inter Lake ó Managing Editor Matt Baldwin and Advertising Director Anton Kaufer.
As a Flathead Valley native, I am extremely pleased and proud of the folks that have made this new version of the Eagle possible. With your help and support, the Bigfork Eagle will once again serve the Bigfork community for years to come.
