GREENVILLE, South Carolina, March 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 6AM City, the world’s fastest growing local media company, has successfully tripled the size of its business in the past six months. In the company’s short six-year time frame, it grew to more than one million subscribers in 24 US cities.

“We’ve spent the past six years perfecting a highly scalable model for creating and growing our hyper-local newsletters in cities large and small,” said 6AM City CEO Ryan Johnston. “Reaching 1 million subscribers is validation that we are delivering value and filling a gap in our local markets. We are proud to say that the model is working exceptionally well and has allowed us to build a nationwide network of 6AM Cities.”

6AM City will continue to expand in 2022 — Working with local municipalities in cities across the country, 6AM City is thrilled 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 markets to the company’s already extensive portfolio.

Our next expansion market will be Tampa, Florida, launching in July, driven by demand from existing advertising relationships. The exact locations of additional expansion markets are being finalized and will be announced over the coming months.

In potential markets, 6AM City has partnered with organizations seeking to accelerate 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 for market selection.

By the end of 2022, 6AM City will operate in 30 or more cities and pursue an expansion strategy to operate in 100 or more cities over the next few years.
