What People Are Saying About Us

Here’s a sampling of some cool things people have had to say about The Tyler Loop in statewide and national press:
1. How this local Texas site used tacos to cover its community | Lenfest Institute

“What’s one tool a news organization can use to help its readers explore different neighborhoods and meet new people in their community? Tacos. Yes, really. The Texas-based Tyler Loop took its readers on a taco tour through the city to help illustrate — and try to bridge — divisions in Tyler.”

2. These national journalists are building a local site to bring a different kind of news to East Texas | Harvard’s NiemanLab
“The Tyler Loop fashions itself as a data-savvy, digital alt-weekly for the growing, increasingly diverse city of Tyler.”
3. How Digital News Startups Choose Between For-Profit and Non-Profit Status | MediaShift

“Last spring, when Tasneem Raja and her husband, Chris Groskopf, launched a hyper-local digital magazine in Tyler, Texas, they were more newsroom colleagues than business partners. The longtime journalists spent the first six months filling The Tyler Loop with data journalism and enterprise stories rather than soliciting advertisers or seed funders.”
