Our History

Founded in 1967 as the Lake Travis News by Harold H. Breadlow, the Hill Country News has been an eyewitness to the incorporation and growth of Cedar Park and Leander, along with the explosive growth of the Northwest suburban Austin. We have strived to report the news in an unbiased manner, telling both sides of the story even when neither side cared to hear the other's point of view. The open-minded approach of listening to all sides about local issues has helped keep the Hill Country News as the utmost authority on what is happening in the Hill Country. Our print edition is published weekly on Thursdays, and we reach tens of thousands of readers online at www.hillcountrynews.com and through our social media presence on Facebook (facebook.com/HillCountryNews), Twitter @HillCountryNws and our @HCNSports Twitter feed.
