WELCOME.

We are SweetwaterNOW.

A local, independent news organization that believes in our communities, and in the power of local media to make them stronger.

The most-read news source in Southwest Wyoming. Located in Sweetwater County, we are Wyoming-owned and operated.

As the #1 media site in Southwest Wyoming, we focus on professional reporting and coverage of community events and regional news. We also feature local businesses and provide the best digital and content advertising available in the region.

We work every day to provide the most up-to-date news at your fingertips. We take pride in being locally-owned in a day when most newspapers are being bought out by the largest publishing companies in the world.

Our staff is community-minded because like you, we are passionate about where we live.

Our mission is to Inspire Your Community with relevant content and local advertising. Thank you for your support.

Relevant Content

Our mission is to produce high-quality, daily news content for our readers. Our aim is to focus locally and regionally on the topics you care about. We also feature local people and businesses that are in your community.

We know you get your global news from somewhere else. You can read AP news and national headlines from any mass media site. But when it comes to your neighborhood, you want the most relevant, compelling and accurate record of our local community’s news and events. We believe in the power of community and encourage you to share your news & tips.

Local Advertising

Because of our focus on content specifically relevant to the Sweetwater County area, our readers are more local than any other news organization in the region. Our daily visitors are educated and engaged in the local community.

We have experienced digital and content marketing professionals on our team that produce advertising and campaigns unmatched in the area. We are also the only local new organization that understands and uses IAB Digital Advertising Standards. Learn more.
