Axios is launching a weekly newsletter focused on “the technological and demographic trends shaping cities.”
The newsletter will cover innovations like 5G networks, drones, self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, and the business and policy changes affecting cities in America.
Debuting on July 10 and sent every Wednesday afternoon, the newsletter will be written by the new Axios cities correspondent, Kim Hart.
Hart was previously managing technology editor at Axios, overseeing coverage of the intersection of business, technology and policy. Scott Rosenberg, previously technology editor, will take on Hart’s former role.
AT&T is the launch sponsor of the Axios Cities newsletter.
This latest addition will bring the total number of Axios newsletters to 18.
Axios, which was created in 2017 by Politico cofounders Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei, most recently launched the Axios Space newsletter with Miriam Kramer in April.
Axios has more than 600,000 subscribers. Its newsletters cover topics such as tech, business, media, politics, science and sports.
The newsletters are known for their short, punchy style, usually a mix of graphics, summaries and bullet-points that are separated into categories like “the big picture” and “why it matters.”
Axios Cities' coverage will be previewed in a “Deep Dive” newsletter on June 29. Hart and the Axios team will analyze the technological, economic and social changes in urban America.
