From Texas Monthly to Texas Weekly: Evan Smith Picks Up Experienced Staff For New Venture

tx tribune.pngAfter announcing his departure from Texas Monthly just last week, Evan Smith made his first big move as incoming CEO of new online news venture the Texas Tribune today with the acquisition of Texas Weekly, a newsletter covering the state’s government and politics.

When the Tribune launches this fall, Texas Weekly subscribers will begin to receive a new weekly publication that will include “premium content not available to regular readers of the Tribune,” the company said. Texas Weekly‘s archives will be added to the Tribune’s Web site, allowing users to search past articles.

The acquisition of Texas Weekly is just the latest news in Texas Tribune’s growth. Today, Smith named Texas Weekly‘s Ross Ramsey managing editor of the Tribune and said five other reporters had also been brought in to the Tribune’s newsroom: Brandi Grissom, Elise Hu, Emily Ramshaw, Abby Rapoport, and Matt Stiles.

Following Smith’s announcement that he was leaving Texas Monthly, where he had served as editor since 2000 and editor-in-chief and president since September, more information came to light about his new venture, the Texas Tribune. The Web site, which is scheduled to launch in September, will be a “non-profit, nonpartisan public media organization whose mission is to promote civic engagement and discourse on the public policy, politics, government, and other matters of statewide interest,” the company says. The organization will publish original news and reporting online and events like conferences and panels. It is to be funded primarily through philanthropy, much like ProPublica and the Huffington Post‘s Investigative Fund.
