The Bismarck Tribune is a daily newspaper with a weekly audience of 82,000 unique readers, printed daily in Bismarck, North Dakota. The Bismarck Tribune is owned by Lee Enterprises. It is the primary daily newspaper for south-central and southwest North Dakota.


Founded in 1873 by Clement A. Lounsberry, the Bismarck Tribune published its first issue on July 11, 1873.[1]

Battle of the Little Bighorn[edit]

The Tribune's first claim to fame came in 1876, when the three-year-old paper published the first reports of George Custer's last stand at the Little Bighorn.[2] Reporter Mark H. Kellogg accompanied Custer and his men and died during the battle.
