Who We Are

West Texas Tribune | AbileneTX | About Us

If you're living in the Abilene, TX area, you probably know that we've been publishing the West Texas Tribune for nine years, ever since our inaugural issue on Mother's Day, 2005. In the interim we haven't skipped a single publication. That's because we're dedicated to keeping Abilene residents connected to one another through great journalism about culture, business, and society.

We like to think of ourselves as a newspaper that connects neighbor to neighbor, and the same goes for connecting your business to the businesses of your neighbors. That's why we offer news that specifically addresses issues important to our community—we want you to start a conversation with the other residents of Abilene, get to know one another, and patronize one another's businesses.

We also reward loyal readers with a website that lets you stay in constant touch with our writers and other readers like yourself. All of these things contribute to the comfortable atmosphere we create for our reader base. We want all of Abilene to be a big, happy family, and that means getting you talking with one another!

The West Texas Tribune is by West Texans, for West Texans, and that includes you! Pick up a print copy of the paper or hop on our website today, and join the conversation, right here in Abilene!
