How the Bakken is changing reporting at the Sidney Herald
(Note: This is the second of a six-part series on "Bakken Spinoffs" airing Thursdays through January 9th on "Montana Evening Edition.")
Covering news in the Eastern Montana town of Sidney has been a changing business over the last five years.
Front pages depicting the life and times of a sleepy farm town now include headlines about a booming population, a booming economy, and crime.
This month, we’re bringing you a series of stories on the side effects of the Bakken Oil Boom, positive and negative.
Capitol Reporter Dan Boyce has the story.
