Established in 1945, News/North covered the 61 communities in the Northwest Territories, a 1,400,000 square mile region north of the 60th parallel. The region made up the present Northwest Territories, plus the area which, in April of 1999 became the new territory of Nunavut. Since then, News/North has evolved into two separate publications, each serving its respective territory. In addition, the Yellowknifer, Deh Cho Drum, Inuvik Drum and Kivalliq News serve regional interests in both territories.
