Scott Engle and Jamie Nash are Montgomery County residents and veteran law enforcement / breaking news reporters, who met covering a law enforcement story and have covered multiple counties, with Scott as a television videographer for multiple local stations and national networks, and Jamie as newspaper / magazine / online reporter. They continued to work together and were eventually married. Jamie is a Montgomery County Republican Party Precinct Chair, and a Board Member of Montgomery County Emergency Services District 9.
MCPR was created in 2008 after Jamie left a newspaper that conflicted with her ethics. Initially, it was blog style website where Jamie wrote stories and posted them with photos. Scott provided video, and as the blog grew in popularity, businesses began to inquire about advertising. The blog soon transitioned to a news website, and then to a print newspaper, which was sold in over 100 stores, and through subscription for several years.
Scott began writing many of the narratives that accompanied his videos, because Jamie took another job related to criminal justice. There is often so much happening, Scott’s stories are written on-scene and appear (obviously) raw and unedited, but they remain the fastest source for information available most of the time. The site is updated daily, and typically dozens of times in a 24-hour period, as news breaks or updates become available.
Jamie continues to write and cover stories, when possible, and creates ads and other graphics for the website, as needed.
MCPR is a pro-law enforcement, pro-Second Amendment publication owned and operated by the husband-and-wife team of Engle and Nash, with over 250,000 Facebook followers as of March 2023. Links to stories can also be found on Twitter, with videos posted on YouTube.
