Welcome to the Montana Free Press pilot site.

We started this website in 2016 as a demonstration project for our free, independent, nonprofit investigative news service. The majority of the content showcased here are original news stories reported and produced by the Montana Free Press. Some syndicated content appears courtesy of fellow Institute for Nonprofit News members.

Our original reporting has appeared in more than 20 newspapers, magazines, radio stations, and online news outlets.

Serious, in-depth news reporting is as important now as it has ever been. With the rise and proliferation of “fake news,” readers are looking for honest sources of news and information. That is what we provide.

If you are interested in helping to launch the Montana Free Press, please sign up for our email list to receive news, information, and developments on our progress.

Thank you,

John Adams
