Join us for happy hour!

We’re always thinking of ways to improve our regional news coverage through our MTFP Local reporting – in-depth, independent reporting on the stories impacting your community from reporters who call it home – and we want to hear from you. We’re making stops across the state as part of our 2022 Local Happy Hour Roadshow to meet with Montanans and talk about the coverage you care about.

Meet us in Great Falls to have a drink with some of our reporters, learn more about our independent, nonprofit newsroom, and share in an open discussion about the issues that matter to you.

Plus, Mighty Mo will donate $1.00 to MTFP for every pint sold between 5:00 and 8:00 PM.

Get a drink with us:

POLITICAL REPORTER

Raised in Arizona, Arren is no stranger to the issues impacting Western states, having a keen interest in the politics of land, transportation and housing. In Montana, he has carved out a niche in shoe-leather heavy muckraking based on public documents and deep sourcing that keeps elected officials uncomfortable and the public better informed.
