About Us

The Havre Herald is an independent online news site that aims to deliver news that matters about Montana’s Hi-Line region.

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

Here at the Herald, we focus on the local economy, relevant local issues, especially as it pertains to crime and social issues, the interesting people of this sometimes unforgiving region, and any investigative topics that need to be exposed.

Meet the Herald Team 

Before working as a reporter, Paul Dragu was a freelance writer. In November 2015 he packed up as much as he could into, and onto, his single cab Ford Ranger and drove more than 2,000 miles from Atlanta to become a newspaper reporter for the Havre Daily News.

Less than a year into his journalism career, Paul won a first place national award for investigative work.

During his time at the Havre Daily, Paul covered, courts and cops and education beats, with occasional forays into agriculture, politics and others.

Teresa Getten, a Salt Lake City native, moved to Havre September 2015. A few months later she too joined the Havre Daily News, where her photos ended up gracing the covers of award-winning pages.

Teresa earned an art and photography degree from Salt Lake City Community College, a bachelor’s in photojournalism and a degree in mass communications from the University of Utah. A veteran photojournalist, she has shot for the Daily Utah Chronicle and worked for Deseret News in Salt Lake City.

Teresa also owns and operates a successful portrait photography business in Havre.
