Our History

Born in 1904 out of a journalistic vacuum when both existing city newspapers refused to cover and expose the monopolistic practices of the local light and power company. Then the La Crosse Tribune stepped into the void; and today the La Crosse Tribune and River Valley Media Group continue that proud tradition of fearless local journalism and responsibility to community service.

Part of Lee Enterprises since 1906, today’s River Valley Media Group, through its three daily newspapers, six weekly publications, and their related online platforms and social media channels; reaches more than 73% of the adults in the marketplace each week. Our dedication to high quality and relevant local journalism makes us the first source for news and information in our community.

La CrosseAnd since 1904, we’ve been dedicated to partnering with local businesses to provide the most comprehensive advertising and marketing solutions available. Today’s River Valley Media Group represents a robust and powerful product and service line-up that focuses on custom-designed and fully integrated multimedia marketing solutions for local businesses.

From a print advertising purveyor in 1904 to today’s robust multimedia product line-up including targeted digital display, social media, search engine advertising, re-targeting, e-mail marketing, reputation management, direct mail, website design and development, events; and so much more.
