Welcome to SweetwaterNOW!
SweetwaterNOW is the most-read news source in Southwest Wyoming. We are an online news organization, focusing on professional reporting and coverage of community events and regional news. We are also digital advertising professionals who help our clients find the best solutions to get their story out.
As Sweetwater County’s #1 news site, we work every day to provide the most up-to-date news at your fingertips. We also take pride in being the only locally-owned independent news source in a day when most local newspapers are being bought out by the largest publishing companies in the world.
Our mission is to Inspire Your Community with relevant content and advertising.
Since launching in 2013, SweetwaterNOW has grown to over 11,500 average daily readers/visits and 1.3 Million page views per month, making us the fastest-growing website AND news source in the area. Our audience is larger than all other local media companies combined (radio, print, web). We also host the largest social media audience in the entire region.
Leveraging that audience we provide unmatched reach and engagement to our advertisers at a fraction of the cost of traditional advertising. We are also the only local digital marketing professionals who understand and use IAB digital advertising practices. Learn more.

SweetwaterNOW was founded in early 2013 by journalist/photographer, Carlo Harryman. After working in the traditional news field for many years he knew there had to be a better way to get the news out to the public – and a faster way. With the help of his friends and family he took the leap into entrepreneurship and created SweetwaterNOW. Within the first year it became the most popular news source in Sweetwater County and gains new readers every day. With the model of getting accurate news to the public in real-time, while partnering with the community to provide the local and regional information they are looking for, SweetwaterNOW has shown their readers where journalism is headed in the future – available right at their fingertips on their computers, tablets, or smartphones.
Carlo was recognized as the Entrepreneur of the Year by Wyoming Main Street in 2013.
