Reston Now Has a New Morning Email Designed for Busy People

Since our launch in 2013, Reston Now has been focused on serving our readers and bringing you the local news you need to know about your community.

Last week, we took another step forward by adding a new morning newsletter to our email subscription options.

Supplementing our Afternoon Update, which links to stories published within the past 24 hours, Reston Now AM (example) is a hand-crafted, concise wrap-up of everything you need to know about what’s going on in Reston to start your day.

Designed with busy people in mind, Reston Now AM gets you briefed on your local news, traffic, weather, business openings and events in Reston — plus some other fun things in between — in just a couple of minutes.

At a time when you’re less and less likely to get a complete picture of local happenings from social media, our email subscription ensures that you don’t miss a local headline.

Sign up for free below, or use this link if you’re having difficulty using the form. If you only want to receive one email per day, you can opt out of the morning or afternoon emails.
