Fargo Daily Tribune

Fargo's morning paper the Courier News had been purchased by the Nonpartisan League and had fallen on hard times. J. P. Dotson, who had sold the Fargo Forum to Norman Black in 1917 and left Fargo, returned to take control of the News April 18, 1923. He changed the name to the Fargo Daily Tribune. Dotson did not fare better financially than his predecessor and he sold the Tribune to Norman B. Black for $60,000 on March 6, 1924. The Tribune paper was subsequently purchased from Black (who had bought it personally) by Forum Publishing Company and the Tribune ceased publication after less than a year of existence.
