Contact / About Us

The Missoula Current began in 2015 as a daily news journal. It was founded on the belief that local news matters. The greater Missoula region needed more reporting, more perspectives and more journalistic competition.

As part of its mission, the Missoula Current focuses on business and the environment, local and state government, Montana’s congressional delegation, and the region’s rapid growth and development. Our team is deeply ingrained in the Missoula community and has been for years. We look to provide readers with a full and accurate picture of what’s going on across Missoula and the Northern Rockies. And we do it for free.

To fund the Missoula Current and is related publications, including Montana Today and Missoula Business Weekly, we rely on the support of our advertising sponsors and contributions from our readers. If you’re interested in partnering with the Missoula Current, contact our publisher, Lisa Vachio, at or 406-493-6296.
