Pagosa Local News was launched by Gabrielle Dorr and Jeff Haprov, who are married and have lived in Pagosa Springs with their son since 2018. Gabrielle produced the first news stories for Pagosa Springs in December, 2019. By early March, 2020 Jeff and Gabrielle placed the first digital displays in town where weekly news stories are shared and enjoyed by locals and visitors.
At Pagosa Local News, we produce video news stories that celebrate our local community and highlight the connections, innovation and growth of our town. Our niche is community news where we can showcase the work of local government, businesses, non-profits, professionals and leaders. We also provide a new form of advertising for local businesses on our digital platforms.
A huge thank you to our news hosts around town:
Terry’s Ace Hardware
AquaSol Waterfront Eatery + Bar
We are still looking for businesses who would like to host our news platform. If you are a business who wants to host Pagosa Local News or know of one, please contact us.
