SW News Media and its' 8 local newspapers including the Eden Prairie News is owned by Big Fish Works. Big Fish Works is a second-generation, family-owned, Minnesota company that has 11 established community newspapers, a successful digital agency and commercial printing operations. Current family ownership of Big Fish Works runs back nearly 50 years.


The Eden Prairie News was founded by a group of Eden Prairie residents in 1974. They recognized that Eden Prairie would soon be a fast-growing suburb, and felt the community should have its own newspaper. They sold stock to get it off the ground. After operating the paper for a couple of years, they sold it to Southwest Suburban Publishing, the original name for Southwest Newspapers.
