Our History

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.
