History

 

Previous to the Planet Media name known today, Planet Media Communications was founded in 2009 by Scott Holgate and Burt Bauman. In January of 2018 Arvig Media purchased several entities from Planet Media Communications. Those assets included Apartment Living Guide, Shop.Dine. Live, the magazine displays in Cub Foods in the Twin Cities and Family Fares in Fargo, ND.

Planet Media Communication’s first publication, the Apartment Living Guide premiered in August 2010 in the Twin Cities. Shortly thereafter; the Apartment Living Guide was launched in St. Cloud, MN, Madison, WI, Fargo, ND and Sioux Falls, SD markets. This handy tool helps connect apartment-seekers with landlords and property managers find the perfect home. Planet Media Communications introduced the Job Guide in 2014 in Fargo, ND with the goal of helping those looking for a new career find employers in need of qualified candidates. Both publications also offer resources for readers, such as interviewing tips and home decor ideas. All our publications have robust websites with tens of thousands of unique and returning visitors monthly.

The Senior Living Showcase and Vendor Guide helped round out the mix. The Senior Living Showcase has 55+ apartment listings, as well as a blog dedicated to the golden years. The Vendor Guide is a one-stop-shop for property managers; chock full of information regarding plumbers, landscapers, attorneys, and more.

In 2015, Planet Media Communications launched Shop.Dine.Live, a new and exciting lifestyle publication. SDL is dedicated to presenting a wide variety of content covering restaurants and bars, sports, fashion, shopping, the arts - anything the community may be interested in. There are two editions of Shop.Dine.Live - one is published, mailed and distributed in the Fargo, ND metro area while the other is direct mailed in the downtown Minneapolis, MN area as well as mailed to affluent homes in the entire Twin Cities Metro area. SDL features the largest audience for any PMC publications, and it continues to grow with every monthly issue released.
