Welcome to the future home of The Longmont Leader!

We’re building a local news website that is 100% focused on the city and people of Longmont. 

From city government to schools, public safety, business, and events, The Leader will be the go-to source for local news. 

Even though we are all practicing safe social distancing right now, we want to talk to you about what you want and need in your local news. Over the next few weeks, we will be hosting virtual events and setting up ways for you to be involved in this process. Sign up for our email list to keep tabs on our progress and hear about these upcoming opportunities. 

In the meantime, we have set up this FAQ to help answer your questions about us and what’s ahead

We recently announced that The Leader will be led by Editor Macie May, who joins us from the Longmont Observer. 

Over the next few weeks, we will be hiring our local staff, establishing partnerships with local businesses and making a news site to keep you informed about your city. If you have additional questions or want to be more involved, let us know at will launch on May 27, 2020.
