6AM CITY: THE FASTEST GROWING NEWSLETTER-FIRST LOCAL MEDIA COMPANY IN THE UNITED STATES REACHES 1 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS
6AM City has reached 1 million subscribers and is looking to expand to multiple cities in the next six months.
Greenville, SC (March 14, 2022) — 6AM City, the fastest growing newsletter-first local media company, successfully tripled the size of the business over the past six months. In the company’s short six-year timeline, it has grown to more than 1 million subscribers in 24 U.S. cities.
“We spent the past six years perfecting a highly scalable model for creating and growing our hyper-local newsletters in cities large and small,” 6AM City CEO Ryan Johnston said. “Hitting 1 million subscribers is validation that we are providing value and filling a gap in our local markets. We’re proud to say the model works exceptionally well and has allowed us to build out a national network of 6AM Cities.”
6AM City will continue expansion in 2022 — Working with local municipalities in cities all over the country, 6AM City is excited to announce that it plans to expand into six additional markets this year. This comes after the company successfully launched in 16 new cities in 2021, adding several top-tier markets to the company’s already extensive portfolio.
Our next expansion market will be Tampa, FL, launching in July driven by demand from existing advertising relationships. The exact locations for the additional expansion markets are being finalized and will be announced over the coming months.
In prospective markets, 6AM City has established partnerships with organizations looking to expedite economic recovery, including economic development entities, professional sports teams, and the entrepreneurial ecosystem. These relationships along with our 1 million subscribers and strong advertising partnerships are accelerating the company’s expansion and are a driving force behind market selection.
By the end of 2022, 6AM City will be operating in 30 or more cities, and continues an expansion strategy to operate in 100 or more cities over the coming years.
