Skagway — In Tlingit, it means a windy place with white caps on the water. The city of Skagway flourished during the famous Klondike Gold Rush at the end of the 19th Century.

Today, Skagway is one of the busiest cruise ship destinations in the world, seeing almost one million tourists in the summer seasons. The Skagway News has proudly served as this unique community’s source of information and news for 40 years. With a winter circulation of 800 newspapers, and summertime circulations of 1,000 papers, we directly tap into the living heart of the town: Its more than 900 year-round residents.

The newspaper’s reach doesn’t stop at Skagway’s borders, however. The Skagway News is sold in Juneau and in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. It is mailed to nearly 550 subscribers from Skagway to Sweden. Even with Skagway’s remote location, the tourism business hasallowed our residents to thrive. It has one of the highest rates ofper-capita income in the state of Alaska, with a median household income of around $70,000.
