ARLnow is establishing its first news beat with the addition of two new editorial staffers.

ARLnow and its sister sites, ALXnow and FFXnow, will all be served by the new breaking news, public safety and local business beat. The beat will allow our newsroom to build more subject matter expertise while better serving readers and making our editorial operation more resilient.

If you’ve gotten used to the current design of the ARLnow website over the past 5+ years, get ready for an adjustment.

A new version of the site will be rolling out soon, perhaps as soon as early Monday morning. Developed by news publisher-focused WordPress agency The Code Company, the site represents a complete rebuild of our current codebase, which dates back to the early 2010s.

Arlingtonians have a new destination for Arlington and ARLnow merch.

Today ARLnow is officially launching our new online store. Whereas we used to only sell items on Amazon — the best-selling Gondola Now shirt for instance — now we have our own storefront for a wider variety of items, designs and colors.

For the past few weeks, ARLnow has been experimenting with an automated email newsletter that’s written almost entirely by AI.

The “ARLnow AM” newsletter sends at 8 a.m. each weekday morning and summarizes that day’s Morning Notes and the past day’s local news articles.
