Say hello to The Blast
Today's issue of Texas Weekly marks the final one in its current format as a weekly newsletter, as it makes way for a subscription-only newsletter arriving in your email inbox five days a week.
Today's issue of Texas Weekly marks the final one in its current format as a weekly electronic newsletter.
Beginning Monday, Texas Weekly becomes The Blast: a five-day-a-week subscription-only email for political insiders who want the behind-the-scenes scoop on what’s going on in the Capitol and on the campaign trail.
The features that have made Texas Weekly a must-read for political insiders at the Capitol — Inside Intelligence, the Calendar, Political People and Their Moves — aren't going anywhere. What's changing is the immediacy in how and when you get that timely, valuable information.
The Blast sends original reporting and those features you rely on directly to your email inbox five days a week. What sets this newsletter apart is its combination of timing and exclusivity — its news and information can be found deep in our reporters’ notebooks, and nowhere else.
We're excited to have this opportunity to continue delivering the valuable information you've relied on for more than 30 years but in a way that better fits the modern, up-to-the-second political news cycles.
We've set up an FAQ page with more information about this transition and, as always, feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if there's anything I can help you with.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to serving you in this new chapter of Texas Weekly's existence.
Quality journalism doesn't come free
Perhaps it goes without saying — but producing quality journalism isn't cheap. At a time when newsroom resources and revenue across the country are declining, The Texas Tribune remains committed to sustaining our mission: creating a more engaged and informed Texas with every story we cover, every event we convene and every newsletter we send. As a nonprofit newsroom, we rely on members to help keep our stories free and our events open to the public. Do you value our journalism? Show us with your support.Yes, I'll donate today
