About Us

The Bonner County Daily Bee has been serving Bonner County and North Idaho residents since 1965. Pete and Adele Thompson founded the paper and believed the region needed a great paper in a great state. Publisher Jim McKiernan has been with the Bee since 2014 bringing with him a wealth of media and marketing experience including ownership of a family-owned weekly newspaper in the suburbs of Seattle.
McKiernan believes the newspaper ''Is the glue that can hold a community together and provide a true sense-of-community, lost in so many of America's cities.''
With the largest paid daily circulation in Bonner County and the busiest website in North Idaho, the Bonner County Daily Bee is changing to provide what our community wants in news and information.

There are many resources and benefits to being a Sandpoint Chamber member. Whether you are a small business looking to start up, or a large business moving into the area, our vision is to bring business and the community together in success.
