In January 2018, the Saskatchewan division of the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group set out to provide the residents of northern Saskatchewan with something they had lost several years ago – a voice.

La Ronge was left with minimal news coverage after CBC closed its one-person bureau in 2012. The La Ronge Northerner, a weekly newspaper, closed after more than four decades of publication in 2015.

We recognized there was a void left for comprehensive news and information reporting. Since our radio stations had been re-broadcasting in La Ronge for some time, this was a natural extension of our commitment to the communities in the North. is part of 7 other local news sites operating in Saskatchewan under the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group – making us the largest combined news team in the province.

As always, our sites remain totally FREE to our readers; auto shopping, classifieds, obituaries, real estate listings, community calendar events and more… all for FREE. If you have a story idea, email us at . – a local news source dedicated to the people of northern Saskatchewan.
