One of the many things our parent company, Townsquare Media encourages all of us to do daily is be local. What is it that is happening locally? Find it, write about it and talk about it. This encourages us daily to think outside the box. One lesson I have learned since being under their wing is to look at other communities we serve. Since we are in a mostly rural area, if there's not much going on, focus on the town. Today starts our journey on the Small North Dakota Town Tour!
