The expansion to Texas follows a four-year period of cumulative revenue and paging growth in excess of 20% for Niche Media and is the latest city-specific launch since the successful debut of Michigan Avenue in Chicago in 2008. Austin Way, the moniker which represents the unique, irreverent and independent spirit of Austin, will capture the essence of this progressive, burgeoning city. The magazine will follow Niche Media's editorial model, which features captivating, rich content that celebrates the local community and connects to the affluent and socially active consumer. Distribution will carefully target this audience, which includes tastemakers, social influencers and thought-leaders through home delivery, and placement in the city's cultural centers, leading hotels, retail shopping districts as well as at high profile events.

Niche Media looks forward to contributing to Austin's economic boom by adding jobs, creating commerce and promoting the city's culturally-rich profile, just as it did with the launch of Miami's Ocean Drive in the early 90s. Austin's growth has given rise to new luxury hotels and real estate development, acclaimed retail, cultural and nightlife venues as well as world-class events such as South by Southwest (SXSW), the Austin Film Festival, the Austin X Games, and the Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix. Austin is a city in the international spotlight and is deemed one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, outpacing all other metropolitan cities in Texas. Austin Way looks forward to chronicling all that makes the city so dynamic.

Lou DeLone has been named Publisher of Austin Way.  DeLone joined Niche Media in July of 2013 as Group Publisher and has spent over 20 years in the publishing and advertising industry with the last nine years concentrated in Texas. Serving as the launch Publisher for Houstonia Magazine, DeLone held senior executive roles in the southwest region as Group Publisher for Houston Magazine, Modern Luxury Dallas and The Atlantan. DeLone serves on several charitable boards within Houston and Austin and is a resident of Austin, TX.

"We are beyond thrilled to be going to Austin, a market that has inspired the nation with its growth over the past several years," says Nicholls.  "It is not only one of the fastest growing economies in the U.S., it has a unique consciousness, personality and sensibility that connects very directly to our company mission.  We are excited to hire a local Austin based team who will join our Publisher Lou DeLone."

"I am very eager to bring Niche Media's reputation for creating the most insightful and engaging city magazines to Austin," says DeLone. "Austin will now have the best magazine to tell the story of its culture and world-class events, and I am eager to grow Niche Media's footprint into Texas."
