Best Local Non-'Chronicle' Publication

Texas Tribune

We tip our caps to the Texas Tribune. It's hard to believe that Evan Smith's nonprofit news org is only now finishing up its fourth year, given how quickly it became a household name in Texas political reporting. (It doesn't hurt that they've partnered with The New York Times as the Grey Lady's go-to resource on our fair state.) The Trib's staff is small but fierce, churning out incredibly useful resources from interactive redistricting maps to daily digests, as well as live-tweeting during special session ballyhoo. To top it all off, TexasTribune.org is a sleek and simple site that makes it easy to navigate, read, and share all your favorite content. It's impossible to visit and not learn something new, and that fact is a tribute to the Trib's fine work.
