SweetwaterNOW is an online news source, focusing on professional reporting and coverage of community events and regional news. As Sweetwater County’s most-viewed news and information resource, we follow a familiar format that includes several sections, much like a printed newspaper or magazine.

– Sports – scores and stories about local and State sports teams
– Jobs – job postings and career recruitment for positions in Southwest Wyoming
– Sponsored Content – featured posts from sponsors and businesses
We also have featured sections during the year for the Holidays, elections, and more. Whether looking for a recap of a City Council meeting or to see where local bands are playing, more and more residents are turning to SweetwaterNOW, and are participating in our growing social network to find out what’s going on in, and around, Southwest Wyoming.
Because of our focus on content specifically relevant to the Sweetwater County area, our readers are more local than any other publication in the region. Our daily visitors are educated and engaged in the local community.

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 his 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, Carlo and his staff have 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.
