The Bismarck Tribune is a daily newspaper with a weekly audience of 82,000 unique readers, printed daily in Bismarck, North Dakota. Owned by Lee Enterprises, it is the only daily newspaper for south-central and southwest North Dakota.
Founded in 1873 by Clement A. Lounsberry, the Bismarck Tribune published its first issue on July 11, 1873. It has been known as the Bismarck Daily Tribune (1881–1916) and Bismarck Tri-Weekly Tribune (1875–1881).
The Tribune's first claim to fame came in 1876, when the three-year-old paper published the first reports of George Custer's last stand at the Little Bighorn. Reporter Mark H. Kellogg accompanied Custer and his men and died during the battle.
In 1938, the paper won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service after publishing a series of articles called "Self-Help in the Dust Bowl."
