Why We Do What We Do
potlight was started on a belief. A belief that Fargo deserved more. A belief that Fargo deserved to be recognized as one of the top cities in the country. A belief that Fargo deserved to have its story told with entertaining and engaging stories. A belief that Fargo can compete with the Twin Cities in terms of amenities. A belief that Fargo and the surrounding areas deserve the best.
Nine years ago, Spotlight began with an idea. Mike “Drago” Dragosavich became a household name in Fargo-Moorhead when he was a punter for NDSU. After a brief stint in the NFL, Dragosavich came back to Fargo and watched as all of his friends moved out of town because there wasn’t enough to do here. Well, he set out to prove them wrong. That’s when he started producing FM Spotlight, a small city magazine that was dedicated to what was happening in the community. Throughout the last six years, we’ve started additional magazines and the team has grown to nearly 30 employees. However, the mission still remains the same: highlight the happenings of our exciting community.
BURGUM ON BUSINESS
We created Fargo Monthly 100 Issue because we wanted to see what sort of a positive impact we could create in the community. It’s not often that you have the chance to actually reach everybody in a community. This magazine was mailed out to every mailbox in Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo. (That’s 93,000 mailboxes.) It was a daunting challenge for a small company like ours to pull off, but with a dedicated team of trueblooded Fargoans, Moorheadites and West Fargoans, we think we successfully pulled it off.
