AUSTIN, TEXAS — Austin.com is pleased to announce the launch of the Austin.com Network, a new entity on the Austin media scene that brings all of our websites together as a single platform.
Austin.com is and always has been a site that celebrates and promotes the unique people and places of Austin, TX and surrounding cities. Though many businesses, locations, and events are closed at this time, we continue to highlight those things so that you can plan to experience them in the future.
The Austin.com Network is Austin.com and Free Fun In Austin. Taken together, sites on the Austin.com Network appeal to both young people and families by showing off “the best of Austin, Texas” in engaging, unique ways. Additional sites on the Austin.com Network will follow, aimed squarely at local people doing good work for our community. To inquire about joining the Austin.com Network, follow the links below.
To signify this new evolution, we have relaunched Austin.com with a new website and brand. The new Austin.com offers readers a look and feel that better targets the audience that has grown around our efforts since launching in 2014. Today, the Austin.com Network offers advertisers access to more than 230,000 followers on social media and more than 40,000 direct subscribers, most of them here in central Texas.
“We are thrilled to finally launch our local network of websites,” said Stephen C. Webster, executive editor of the Austin.com Network and founder of the network’s management company, Proud Highway Media Group. “But we are even more grateful to our users, to whom we promise that our network will continue to work toward making Austin a more welcoming, fun, and accessible city for all.”
