There's been a newspaper in Eagle River since March 1886, and its 125-year history makes the Vilas County News-Review one of the oldest businesses in the community. There have been many owners, some for a short time and others for a third of a century. There have been enormous changes in technology, from hand setting to computerized typesetting, on-screen pagination and the speed of electronic messaging. The News-Review's leadership changed Jan. 1, 2011, when Byron McNutt retired and Krueger was named the new publisher. Ridderbusch was named editor. The two longtime News-Review staffers are commited to continuing the newspaper's tradition of excellence and award-winning quality. The News-Review is one of the city's biggest employers.
