The Daily Inter Lake is the flagship property of the Hagadone Media Montana group of newspapers – which also include the Whitefish Pilot, Hungry Horse News, Bigfork Eagle, Lake County Leader, Clark Fork Valley Press, Mineral Independent and The Western News.

The Daily Inter Lake has served Northwest Montana since 1889. We were founded by Clayton and Emma Ingalls as a weekly newspaper in Demersville, and two years later the entire operation moved north to Kalispell. As the largest news-gathering operation in the region – and oldest manufacturing company in Kalispell – we strive to connect our readers to the people, places and institutions which make Northwest Montana home.

Offering home delivery six days a week and online 24/7 through our website, eEdition, social media channels and podcasts, the Inter Lake is the premiere source for local news, information and marketing solutions.
