Houston Landing Launches Its Full News Platform Featuring Robust Daily Storytelling Driven by Community Input and a Mission ‘To Strengthen Democracy and Improve the Lives of All Houstonians, One Story at a Time’

HOUSTON ~ Houston Landing, a digital news platform providing essential and independent journalism, has officially launched on Wednesday, June 7. The nonprofit local media outlet is based in Houston's Montrose neighborhood and is dedicated to accountability reporting and telling stories that reflect the region's diversity across the Greater Houston area.

Houston Landing content is free with no paywalls or subscription fees to ensure that its high-quality journalism reaches as many people as possible. It also allows other news media to freely republish its content. The Landing has grown rapidly since its soft launch in February, adding 22 new staff members to its team of top talent from all corners of the country. With numerous other positions still to be filled, The Landing is well on its way to becoming one of the largest local news nonprofits in the country.

As summer transitions into fall, Houston Landing's reporters will be tasked with publishing dozens of stories every month as it moves from its launch phase to a regular cadence that will see the platform dive even deeper into diverse communities across Greater Houston and report on subjects that matter to its residents. In addition to its published stories, The Landing will also begin hosting community events designed to foster dialogue between its newsroom staff and Houstonians with opinions on what types of stories they want to see reported.

Houston Landing was funded with seed investment from three leading local philanthropies – the Houston Endowment, Arnold Ventures and Kinder Foundation – after a study spearheaded by the American Journalism Project found many Houstonians do not feel they have access to a trusted source for deeply reported stories that impact their daily lives. It is led by Editor-in-Chief Mizanur Rahman, CEO Peter Bhatia and Managing Editor John Tedesco.
