Let’s refresh: What is LOUtoday and what do we cover?

It’s never a bad idea to reintroduce yourself — we’re LOUtoday, a hyper-local newsletter that’s curated, narrated, and delivered to your inbox every day at 6 a.m.

Greetings from Louisville

We know how difficult it can be to keep all of your local and national media outlets straight. Everywhere you turn, someone is publishing a story.

If you’ve ever found yourself wondering who we are here at LOUtoday, no worries. Allow us to reintroduce ourselves — from our mission of activating and educating Louisvillians to the editors who make it happen.

How it works

LOUtoday is a branch of our parent company, 6AM City. While there are 6AM City markets spanning the nation from Boston to Seattle, your LOUtoday newsletter is written by two locals — more on that later.

Let’s answer some FAQs:

Q: Is LOUtoday affiliated with the City of Louisville?
A: No. We share as much news about the city of Louisville as possible, but we’re two independent entities.

Q: Who should I direct my feedback to?
A: Feedback is a gift; we’ll always take it. Email your thoughts any time.

Q: Why don’t I see any coverage of national news, crime and punishment, or politics in my newsletter?
A: Every media company is different. At 6AM City we choose to cover the most relevant, hyper-local news and events — focusing on city guides, civic conversations, new businesses, history, lifestyle, and food and drink. You can read more in our editorial ethics policy.
