The first Pipestone Flyer

Many critics of the newspaper industry hold the belief that the publication you now hold in your hands is playing second fiddle to social media like Facebook or online news websites. Those critics obviously don’t know a big anniversary is coming up for one local newspaper.

The Pipestone Flyer is turning 20 in the New Year.

Purchased by Black Press in 2014 to become one part of the newspaper chain’s Prairie Division, The Pipestone Flyer was started the first week of January 1997 by former publisher/editor Ted Okkerse.

The Pipestone Flyer began as nothing more than a sheet of foolscap run off a printer. Within a year, it became multi-page, full-size and colour.

The Pipestone Flyer is grateful to its clients, readers and supporters, for without you this success would not have been possible.

Look for a special anniversary section of the newspaper coming soon.
