As first announced on April 8, today is the last day of the printed and freely distributed West Fargo Pioneer until further notice, but it's not the end of our commitment to cover West Fargo.

We want to thank all of our supporters over the years, but also encourage the community to continue supporting West Fargo's hometown newspaper online and into the future.

The Pioneer's E-paper, website and dedicated West Fargo coverage will continue. Readers can continue supporting the Pioneer by subscribing online at

By registering as a West Fargo subscriber, you will not only have unlimited access to, but all websites owned and operated by Forum Communications Co., which includes InForum, where you'll be able to keep up on all metro, state and regional news and sports.

The decision by Forum Communications Co. to suspend printing of the Pioneer, which had been mailed free of charge to every household in the 58078 zip code since 2014, was due to financial pressures placed on the industry in the wake of the pandemic.
