Alpha News uses advanced social media and online technology platforms to deliver important news programming to audiences everywhere in Minnesota.

Unlike traditional media, our programming goes beyond the headlines and focuses on issues of local interest that consistently go unreported.

Our news is fueled by citizens and their interests. If you have an idea for a story, please email us at We often feature stories from many writers and encourage citizens of Minnesota to submit original content.
