The anger of citizens and journalists with those newspapers led to the formation of the La Crosse Tribune, which tackled the story with its first edition on May 16, 1904.
Three years later, the Tribune became one of the first newspapers in what was then called the Lee Syndicate – today known as Lee Enterprises.
The Tribune survived as La Crosse’s only newspaper in 1917.
Today the La Crosse Tribune and companion web site lacrossetribune.com reach 83% of the market through our 7 day a week newspaper and 24/7 online site.
