Today we’re unveiling a new look for austin360.com and our news site statesman.com. At the same time, we’re saying goodbye to MyStatesman.com, which had been our subscriber-only site the past five years.

The new austin360.com completes the American-Statesman’s transition into the GateHouse Media family of products following the newspaper’s change in ownership this year. The web design seeks to improve the experience for our readers and advertisers. We think it does just that and hope you agree.

“This new austin360 homepage is more visually interesting and allows us to show off our best stories, photos and videos,” said Statesman Managing Editor John Bridges.

Austin360 will remain free for everyone to use.

Our events listings have changed, and we encourage community groups and businesses to promote your events with us — and have your event listing shared among multiple sites. You can even get analytics to track the audience reach of your event listing.

We welcome your feedback via email at editors@statesman.com or add your comments below.

We hope you enjoy the site.
