About

The Montrose Mirror is a weekly Monday newsblast serving the West Central Region of Colorado’s Western Slope since 2010. We are locally-operated and locally-owned, and we are circulated on Mondays via email (8,000+), Facebook and Twitter. Publisher Caitlin M. Switzer is the daughter of nationally-known journalist and CSU Journalism professor Cecil Neth, and has been a Western Slope reporter for more than 17 years. She has been a staff writer for two daily print newspapers, starting her reporting career with the region’s best weekly newspaper (Delta County Independent). Prior to becoming a journalist Caitlin worked for many years as a freelance writer and outreach specialist. She is a graduate of the University of Colorado at Denver’s General Writing program. Staff Writer Gail Marvel has been a published writer for many years, and has a strong background in governmental and community issues. She is a former City Councilor and Vietnam-era United States Veteran. Staff Writer Liesl Greathouse is a gifted young journalist who specializes in community features; Rob Brethouwer is a law enforcement professional by day but brings his lifelong passion for classical music to the Mirror pages each week as a classical music writer and critic. The Mirror also welcomes several columnists and freelance contributors each month.

We have also recently welcomed the Western Slope’s greatest photojournalist, William B. Woody, to our team as Digital Content Producer; Mr. Woody’s  astonishing photos speak in ways that no story ever could.

We are real journalists, covering local news on the ground, at the source. Because by the time it is print, it’s history.
