Who’s in charge?

The Flyer is a publication of Wonderstate Media, LLC, which is locally owned and operated by Dustin Bartholomew and Todd Gill. The Flyer’s content is created by Dustin, Todd, and a handful of talented contributors.

Dustin and Todd are also co-owners of a real estate company called Flyer Homes, which includes a small team of local residents. In their work for the company, Dustin helps with marketing while Todd provides some photography.


Because of the Flyer’s focus on content specifically relevant to Fayetteville, our readers are more local than any other publication in the area. Our daily visitors are educated and engaged in the local community.

Since launching in 2007, the Flyer has grown to receive over 200,000 pageviews per month making us the fastest-growing website in the area. Sound good? Learn more.

Our Mission

As a locally owned, online source for Fayetteville-specific information on news, events and other interesting things around town, the Fayetteville Flyer should always remember that the more coverage we can provide for our city’s existing culture, the more we’ll encourage its growth and the stronger it will become. The Flyer should be spirited, accurate, and fair, and should provide useful information that gives value to members of our community. Our goal is to celebrate what’s good about Fayetteville – including the peculiarities that make our city uniquely attractive – while occasionally calling attention, thoughtfully, to what can and should be improved. The Flyer should be open to voices from the community, encourage discussion, and strive to create an enjoyable place for both its readers and contributors.
