Community Impact Newspaper establishes TV partnership to boost Austin-area news coverage

This week, Community Impact Newspaper combined forces with a new TV partner, KTBC, the Austin-based FOX affiliate.

We are very proud to join General Manager Michael Lewis, News Director Pam Vaught and the rest of the FOX 7 team to bring the best in hyperlocal news to our readers.

This partnership has already paid off thanks to FOX 7’s Hurricane Harvey coverage. Their expert weather team, led by Chief Meteorologist Scott Fisher, has provided essential coverage this week to Community Impact Newspaper readers, and that effort will continue beyond the hurricane season. We look forward to providing weekly forecasts and timely breaking news weather updates as part of this partnership.

FOX 7 will also include Community Impact Newspaper content on air and on its website. Our Leander-Cedar Park Editor Caitlin Perrone made her TV debut Thursday, Aug. 24 to discuss the rising Central Texas senior population.

We also look forward to featuring our Impacts—area business announcements—and restaurant profiles as part of future on-air segments. In exchange, FOX 7 will provide daily digital content, including video segments from on-air broadcasts.

We thank Michael, Pam and their team for making this partnership possible. We look forward to informing Central Texas residents in a more powerful way than ever before.
