The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead, previously titled the Fargo Forum, is a daily newspaper printed in Fargo, North Dakota. It is the flagship of Forum Communications. The Forum, as it is commonly known, is the primary daily paper for southeast North Dakota, and also much of northwest Minnesota. Its average daily circulation is about 65,000 on Sundays and 51,000 on weekdays.The Forum was first published on November 17, 1891 by Major A. W. Edwards. However, it traces its lineage to The Republican, which had been founded by Edwards in 1878 and merged into the Forum in 1894. It has been owned by the family of N. B. Black since 1917; publisher Bill Marcil, Jr. is the son of Black's great-granddaughter.
The Forum is also co-owned with radio station WDAY AM (though not KOYY, formerly, WDAY-FM, which is currently owned by Midwest Communications) and TV stations WDAY-TV and WDAZ-TV. In spring 2008, The Forum's news staff merged with WDAY-AM's news team, forming one of the first joint radio-print news-gathering operations in the country.
In July 2012, the newspaper turned down the request of a same-sex couple to announce their wedding.
In 2014, news designer Greg Cornfield's layout of a cover page made The Newseum's top ten front pages of the day.
In 2015, higher education reporter Grace Lyden won the NDNA's Rookie of the Year award for her "bulldog tenacity."
