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."

Nicholls says in a statement, "We are beyond thrilled to be going to Austin, a market that has inspired the nation with its growth over the past several years. 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."
