About Us

The Havre Herald is an independent digital-only news organization that publishes news about Montana’s Hi-Line region.

The organization was founded by Paul Dragu and Teresa Webber Dragu, who moved to Big Sky Country for different reasons but have come to love this spacious, traffic-less prairie paradise all the same.

The Herald’s foci are relevant local stories that often require a deeper dive than the average news story. Click here to learn more about what we do.

Support Local Journalism

The Havre Herald is dependent on advertising partners and recurring contributors for revenue. There is no paywall standing between readers and the important news we publish. But we do ask those who can to contribute so we can keep delivering news that matters. Although our news is free, making it is definitely not.

If you value the work we do at The Herald, sign up for a recurring donation here.
