The Stowe Reporter is a newspaper based in the US state of Vermont that is published once a week on Thursdays and has a circulation of 5,000.[1] It serves greater the Mt. Mansfield area, including Stowe, Waterbury, Morrisville, Hyde Park, and across Lamoille County, Vermont.[2]

Hannah Marshall Normandeau is the paper's managing editor.[3]

History[edit]

The Stowe Reporter was founded in 1958 by Dorre Hanna and Martha Ball.[4][2]

It was purchased by Trow Elliman, Alex Nimick, Russ Spring, Mary and Bob Bourdon two years later, in 1960. Elliman bought out his partners in 1965. He remained as publisher of the paper until 1998.[5]

In May of 1998 the paper was bought by A.B. "Biddle" Duke.[4] Duke was the son of Angier Biddle Duke and Robin Chandler Duke. In 2007, Duke spun off another paper, the Waterbury Record.[6] Duke stepped down as publisher in 2014.[7]

In 2015, Duke sold his majority share in the paper to Bob Miller[8][9] and Greg Popa became publisher of the paper.[10][11]

Since 2016, the Stowe Reporter has added more local newspapers to its group, including the Shelburne News, The Citizen, the Other Paper, the Waterbury Record, and the News & Citizen of Morrisville.[12][13] When the Stowe Reporter Group purchased these papers, Tom Kearney became deputy managing editor of the Stowe Reporter (he had been managing editor) and managing editor of the Shelburne News and The Citizen.[12]
