Smarter, easier local news
What is Sioux Falls Simplified?
Sioux Falls Simplified cuts through the clutter and delivers bullet-pointed, bite-sized local news directly to your inbox.
No jargon. No opinion content. No B.S.
This is news for people who live in the Sioux Falls metro area and want to stay informed but don’t currently have a sustainable news habit – either because of cost barriers or because their information needs aren’t met by legacy media outlets.
- We publish twice weekly with email newsletters delivered Wednesday and Friday mornings.
Who's behind this?
Hi, Megan Raposa here.
I’m an award-winning journalist and a lifelong South Dakotan. I know Sioux Falls because I’ve lived, worked, played and started a family here. I know news because I’ve worked nearly a decade as a professional journalist and freelance reporter, most recently as an editor for the Sioux Falls Argus Leader.
I started Sioux Falls Simplified because I wanted quick, easy-to-read news that left me feeling empowered and informed rather than sad and tired.
