Ouray County Plaindealer

1075 Sherman St. Unit 200, Colorado

The Ouray County Plaindealer has served as Ouray County's official news source since 1877 and still publishes weekly on Thursdays.

The new owners, Mike Wiggins and Erin McIntyre, purchased the paper in April 2019 and are happy to be local business owners who live in Ouray County and have a goal of connecting the Plaindealer's readership with the community news they need to know.

In addition to the weekly newspaper, the Plaindealer also publishes a monthly business and real estate special section. The Plaindealer currently reaches approximately 3,500 readers in 41 states via print and e-edition, though most of its readership calls Ouray County home for at least part of the year. Its website,, regularly reaches between 15,000+ unique users each month.
