“It seems like it was just yesterday that I was announcing the launch of our new statewide media organization,” said Konni Burton, founder and CEO of The Texan. “It’s been a busy and rewarding year fighting media bias and disinformation by providing factual, straight reporting of the news that is important and relevant to Texans.”
In just 12 months, The Texan has received national attention for the quality of its reporting, brought critical stories into the limelight, and added key features that enable Texans to remain informed about politics and public policy. The Back Mic was added to provide an insiders look into Texas politics and The War Room was launched before the March primaries to provide unparalleled election coverage.
With over 60 published podcasts, The Texan has provided consistent news roundups and interviews with movers-and-shakers including Representative Dan Crenshaw, Representative Chip Roy, former Congressman Allen West, and many others.
“This year, we’ve done exactly what we set out to do: provide Texans across our state with news they can trust,” continued Burton. “The overwhelmingly positive response to our reporting is proof that Texans everywhere are yearning for reliable journalism.”
Boasting one thousand articles and one million readers, The Texan is quickly becoming a household name among active newsreaders in the Lone Star State.
