Henderson County Now is an online daily news site founded and continuously web-published in Athens, Texas since January 2, 2013. It is Henderson County’s most popular Facebook news site, receiving more than 8,000 unique visitors per week. Please join our friends in keeping up with event information and photographs from around the county. The most amazing thing is that this service is provided completely free of charge to our users.
Our full time information source, Michael Hannigan, is an award-winning journalist with 20 years of experience in our community. This free online news service was created by Michael and local lawyer Jeff Weinstein. Our hope is to provide the community with the best relevant information from each and every news source… so we freely share stories from the Review, the Tyler Paper, The Malakoff News, The Monitor, The Chandler paper, and any other source that fits, making sure to link back to their site/give them credit. They are all doing good work .. we just try and bring it together in one spot for you.
Yes we have a website to host our stories ... but Henderson County Now was developed with CONVERSATION in mind ... we want to be the place where Henderson County comes to talk ... so Facebook and social media isn't just a part of our strategy, it is who we are.
Finally, there is no advertising, with one exception ... a couple times a month we run a post thanking our sponsor, Weinstein Law.
