“As our business grows, we continue to place more of our resources into local coverage,” said Source co-founder and Publisher Aaron Switzer. “It is really rewarding to be recognized for our commitment to covering local issues and for the hard work our journalists are putting in every day.”

In 1997, Aaron and Angela Switzer founded the Source Weekly, covering news, art, music, events, outdoors and other issues of interest to readers in Central Oregon. In addition to covering local news, the Source Weekly maintains the most comprehensive events calendar in the region and produces a host of guides and special issues. In 2019, the Source launched the Cascades Reader, a five-day-a-week email publication aimed at providing a more regular rotation of relevant local and regional news to readers in Central Oregon.
