About Us

Kootenai Valley Times is a locally owned and operated and independent news business, managed by owners Mike Weland, News Director, and Skye Dimmitt, Business Manager.

We offer a full service online local “newspaper” and an internet radio station providing news and information of the Kootenai River Valley, including Libby and Troy, Montana, Moyie Springs and Bonners Ferry, Idaho and Creston, British Columbia, with our main office, newsroom and studio at 6931 Main Street, Bonners Ferry, Idaho. For news, contact Mike Weland at (208) 295-1016, or email mike@kvt.news.

Both believe that the most important news is local news and in the importance of getting the news out in time to make a difference. We also believe that to be effective, news should be available for free to all readers and listeners, not just locally but globally.

We do not ask a subscription fee or require readers to fill out a survey to read the news, we want nothing to stand between the reader and  the news they’re interested in.

Instead of asking readers to pay, we offer businesses the greatest reach of any local advertising outlet, reaching potential customers worldwide and on their schedule, 24/7.
