News In A Minute is back, new owners to resume popular publication


Mike and Naomi Waddell have revived a part of Brandon history, with the purchase of News In A Minute.

Recently the owner of News In A Minute, Robert ‘Bob’ Ferguson, passed away at which point the 28-year-old publication ceased to exist.

Mike had been interested in News In A Minute for several years and had many discussions with Robert about taking over from him when he chose to retire.  Mike’s family has been involved with the newspaper industry for years.

“We believe in print media…we have a print background with my family in Neepawa” said Mike.  “This is Bobs legacy, and has been a big part of the community for almost 30 years” added Mike.

News in a Minute will be expanding to further locations in the future. The plan for now is to reestablish connections with the local business community and to get the paper on tables at local restaurants, coffee shops, etc.

The Waddell’s hope to start with publication shortly with the first edition on the street by April 2nd.
