Located in Columbia Falls, The Hungry Horse News is Montana's largest weekly newspaper with a circulation of 7,200. Published every Thursday, we cover the community of Columbia Falls (population 4,500), all of Glacier National Park and the Flathead Valley.

The name dates back to 1900 when two freight horses were lost in the woods. When found a month later in belly-deep snow, they were skin and bones - and very, very hungry. Today, Hungry Horse is the name of a creek, lake, mountain, town and hydroelectric dam.

Mel Ruder founded the paper of August 8, 1946, in Columbia Falls. It remains one of the few newspapers in America published in a log building.
