We are a New Media* outlet made up of a small, yet dedicated group of news junkies - it's our passion. We collaborate with our community in order to provide our readers news and information they can trust, and on the platforms they want; DrydenWire Website, DrydenWire Facebook, and DrydenWire Twitter.

We launched in 2015 after recognizing the large gap in news and info coverage in our area in between weekly print publications of local newspapers. Our goal was and continues to be, to inform our community of the news they want, in a way they want it, 7 days a week, and for free.  

We are based out of Spooner, Wisconsin, and the community members in our area of Spooner, Shell Lake, Minong, and Sarona are our main focus.  We publish posts from neighboring towns as well including: Rice Lake, Barron, Birchwood, Hayward, Siren, Grantsburg, Webster, Turtle Lake, Cumberland, and many more but our goal is to always be loyal to our area readers in our area first.  

In 2016, we launched a completely new website focused more on readers viewing us on their mobile and tablet devices - which makes up about 75% of our followers.  

The news business is tough.  Doing it for free adds another challenge.  But nothing gives us more satisfaction than providing the news and information to our readers in a timely and factually way and hearing the kind words and appreciation from our readers for doing so.  

We love what we do and we hope that you will enjoy our free content.

*New Media is a 21st Century catchall term used to define all that is related to the internet and the interplay between technology, images and sound. In fact, the definition of new media changes daily, and will continue to do so. New media evolves and morphs continuously. What it will be tomorrow is virtually unpredictable for most of us, but we do know that it will continue to evolve in fast and furious ways.
