This News Matters

South Dakota News Watch is the only news organization in our state dedicated solely to reporting in-depth stories. Since 2018, over 105 stories have been published, uncovering problems that became the basis for 12 bills in the 2019 South Dakota Legislature. Our journalism is shared, free of charge, with media outlets across the state.
