About This Blog

I’m Matt Fern, a native North Dakotan from Bismarck. I graduated from Montana State University with a degree in media production and returned to North Dakota knowing that there are many good stories in our state yet to be told. In the fall of 2011, I began telling those stories with Daily Dakotan, a video series profiling a different North Dakota resident each day. Some of our subjects are high-profile newsmakers, while others are hidden treasures in the community. The videos are produced, distributed and marketed through my business, The Creative Treatment.

This AreaVoices blog features links to episodes of Daily Dakotan and behind-the-scenes stories – how did we find this subject? What made this person or subject special to us? What didn’t make it into the video? You can also use the blog to talk about the episodes and even ask the featured Dakotan questions. Tell us what you think and thanks for watching.
