There has been a newspaper in Eagle River since March 1886. Its long history makes the Vilas County News-Review one of the oldest businesses in the community. The newspaper is currently owned by Wisconsin-based media company Multi Media Channels (MMC). Vilas County News-Review is owned by the Wood family, owned and operated by both family members and employees, publishing 31 weekly and four monthly print publications and 28 digital channels that serve the central, northern and eastern regions of Wisconsin.
Kurt Krueger and Michelle Drew, along with ad consultant/sportswriter Doug Etten and new production manager Al West, are committed to continuing the newspaper’s tradition of excellence and award-winning quality. The News-Review is one of the city’s biggest employers.
