Shakopean suspends publication during search for new publisher

By Amanda McKnight

The Shakopean has paused publication of stories while it pursues new ownership opportunities.

Effective in August, I resigned my role as publisher and editor of the Shakopean to prevent a conflict of interest in my new position as communications manager for the city of Shakopee.

My passion and support for truthful, ethical local news is steadfast. Though I can’t at this time announce what’s in store for the Shakopean upon my departure, I can say I’m hopeful this is not the last you’ll see of this publication.

Thank you to the Shakopean’s financial contributors, advertisers, retweeters and everyone who has supported me since starting this passion project in the spring of 2019. By supporting local news, we support the entire community!
