Fargo-Moorhead: media consolidation’s ground zero

In my research of press outlets in Minnesota towns, I have found the face of deregulation in Fargo-Moorhead. One communications group, Forum Communications, owns one newspaper, two TV stations, and a radio station and have plans to merge the staff of the radio and newspaper.

Another group, Hoak Media, all the way out in Dallas, owns two more tv stations in Fargo-Moorhead. The not only share the same staff, they share the same website.
