Argus Leader news director Cory Myers stated that "It's important to differentiate between the building sale and our continued commitment to local journalism. The Argus Leader as an institution isn't going anywhere. We've been part of this community for 140 years and counting. As a publisher of news and as a business partner, we'll be as strong as ever; just in a new physical home."

The Argus newspaper has a deep history in the State of South Dakota. According to the Encyclopedia of the Great Plains ...

“The Argus Leader, published in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, is the survivor of a number of newspapers that have existed in that community since its first founding in 1857. It is the product of a merger of two early papers: the Sioux Falls Argus, a weekly paper begun in 1881, and the Sioux Falls Leader, which was founded in 1883. The consolidation occurred in 1887, and the name was hyphenated until December 3, 1979.”
