Lone Star LifeA New Year’s Message to The Texan Community

Thank you for an amazing 2019 launch year.
January 1, 2020
As we begin a new year and a new decade, I wanted to take a moment to personally express my gratitude to our readers and subscribers at The Texan. When my husband and I made the decision to launch an online news outlet aimed at capturing the spirit of Texas and restoring objectivity to Texas media, we knew it would be a big and challenging endeavor.

And indeed, it has been.

Starting a new business in a field where we had little experience (outside of personally bearing the brunt of some misleading or outright false stories) showed us just how much work would be required to implement our vision for a thriving, competitive media entity committed to objectivity and pushing back against the progressive narrative-weaving that all-too-often elevates ideology over truth.

And yet, despite the challenges inherent to any new business, we go into this new year having firmly found our footing and excited to watch our presence as a trusted news source for thousands of Texans continue to accelerate.

This would not be possible without all of you.

The support we have received has been encouraging beyond words and in ways that strike true to the spirit of what we’re seeking to accomplish: informing Texans about the issues that impact their lives without the false narratives and far-left worldview held by so many other media entities in our beloved state.

As The Texan enters 2020, I want to thank all of you for buying into this vision. Thank you for helping us grow and add new reporters, team members, and features. And for propelling us forward to new heights.

None of this would have happened if it were not for all of you. We are grateful for your support. We are humbled by the continued trust you have put into this enterprise. And we are committed to ramping up our efforts and growth to provide you with the absolute best Texas-focused news you can find.

Happy New Year! God bless you all and God bless Texas!
