As of this morning FFXnow has officially launched, expanding our Fairfax County-wide news coverage and serving as a new home for Reston Now and Tysons Reporter.
Our hyperlocal coverage areas each have their own section on the FFXnow site, but their archives will remain on the older domains, for now. Readers in the Reston and Tysons areas will continue to receive afternoon newsletters but can also sign up for FFXnow to bring them government, business, development and breaking news from across the county every weekday.
Social media accounts for Reston and Tysons will maintain their identity and remain active with the latest local news, with the exception of Reston Now’s Instagram, where you will now see content from across the county under the new FFXnow brand. If you haven’t already, follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
FFXnow is published by Northern Virginia-based Local News Now and led by a team of three journalists. LNN also publishes ARLnow and ALXnow.
We are excited to share more local reporting with you, Fairfax County. To send news tips, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
FFXnow is a new local news source for Fairfax County, from the publisher of Reston Now and Tysons Reporter.
Our reporters will bring you up-to-the-minute local news and scoops with a countywide focus.
Fairfax County is Northern Virginia’s economic engine, a diverse community that’s home to Fortune 500 headquarters, major technology companies and high-growth startups. However, the current countywide local news options, in our opinion, only scratch the surface of what’s going on here and are not reflective of the area’s dynamism.
Fairfax County deserves a modern, online-only local news outlet with original reporting that provides both depth and breadth. We look forward to serving all who live and work in Fairfax County and growing our coverage over time.
