New and exciting things are happening at The Idaho Dispatch!
Greg Pruett, who started and established The Idaho Dispatch, has now sold the company to Miste Karlfeldt.
Miste is a native Idahoan and an entrepreneur. She is married to Dr. Michael Karlfeldt and the mother of four exceptional children. She founded a statewide non-profit organization and has successfully run it for six years with a passionate team of volunteers. Miste’s commitment to the First Amendment and her love for Idaho drives her desire to purchase the Idaho Dispatch.
As the company’s transfer of ownership takes shape, Miste had this to say,
“Greg Pruett has built an incredible news source for Idaho with the Idaho Dispatch and I’m excited about the opportunity to expand it even further.
Greg and I have been working together for over a month now in this transition process. His trust, experience, and guidance is greatly appreciated as my team and I continue to keep the Idaho Dispatch true to Greg’s vision of bringing unbiased news to Idahoans.Advertisement
I hope that the community will see value and help fund this resource so that Idahoans will have access to unbiased news for generations to come. We hope to bring you more investigative journalism, live feeds during legislative session and events, along with balanced news for you to be a well-informed Idahoan.”
Greg shared his thoughts as well,
“When I started the Idaho Dispatch, my goal was to create something that Idahoans wanted in a news agency. But ultimately, my family life and the Dispatch, in addition to the heavy workload I already had, was too much for me to do by myself. I’m excited some new folks are coming on for the Dispatch to continue to grow, and I’m proud to continue to help it as well, on the side as an advisor and editor assistant. I’m confident in Miste’s ability to ensure Idahoans will continue to have unbiased news that just tells the story, as we have been doing for the last 2+ years.”Advertisement
