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 jreynolds@texastribune.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.
