ALXnow Celebrates Launch with Event in Old Town

A little over one month after it launched, local news site ALXnow celebrated its launch with a party last night (Tuesday).

The event was hosted by McEnearney Associates — ALXnow’s launch sponsor — at the company’s Alexandria headquarters at 109 S. Pitt Street. The event featured appearances from city leaders and members of the local business community.

ALXnow is part of the Local News Now group, which started with ARLnow and includes Reston Now and Tysons Reporter — which launched last year. Local News Now also partners with D.C. community site PoPville and regional running publication RunWashington.

“We like to take everything Arlington does and do it better,” Mayor Justin Wilson quipped, of the city’s newest local news publication and its sister site to the north.
