Being up to date on local news is something I enjoy. The news in Steamboat is more often feature stories over hard news. Most hard news is related to local government, though sometimes we see our local law enforcement making good arrests or helping out in rescues.
Our main newspaper, the Steamboat Today, is a great resource. Around town, there are a number of places where a person can pick up a free copy of the newspaper. For persons out of town, there is an e-version that can be found on the newspaper’s website.
The City of Steamboat Springs has a community news webpage on their main site. It covers a number of community matters and events. Easy to read and kept up to date, this page is helpful.
Finally, for reading news, Google News offers a good collection of current articles relevant to Steamboat and Routt County. Google aggregates area news articles and prioritizes them.
For television news, Steamboat TV offers news and lifestyle coverage. They highlight events, people making progress in the area, and lifestyle coverage that is supplemented with great videos from Outside TV. There is also coverage of city meetings.
News in Steamboat is exciting when it is about athletes in town, Steamboat Resort opening or improving lifts and restaurants. It also gets a lot of attention when the strange and unusual occur. Normally Search and Rescue is involved in the story, and that team is great at what they do and succeed.
