Houston Landing a digital news platform providing essential and independent journalism has officially landed. As of Wednesday, June 7, the nonprofit local media outlet is now operating its full-scale news platform, publishing a diverse range of stories daily from a growing team of award-winning journalists and veteran editors. The Houston Landing's mission focuses on accountability reporting and telling stories that reflect the region's diversity across the entire Greater Houston area, including all of its suburbs as well as parts of the city that are historically under-represented in the media.
After softly launching in February, the Landing has moved into its new home in Houston's storied Montrose neighborhood and plans to grow its editorial staff to 25 full-time reporters. 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.
"Since first going live on February 1 when we introduced our name and leadership team the Houston Landing has grown at a fast and furious pace. We've added 22 new staff members to our team of top talent from all corners of the country. We are a diverse mix of reporters, editors, producers, finance, and product leaders. 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," noted Houston Landing Editor-in-Chief Mizanur Rahman.
