Updated: Texas Newspapers with RSS Feeds

Thanks to Lukethelibrarian, I’ve found that only a few Texas newspapers provide RSS feeds:

Dallas Morning News
Austin American Statesman
Denton Record-Chronicle
Galveston County News
Greenville Herald-Banner

I misread the list of newspapers, thinking that “Add” meant to add it to your aggregator. It actually means that we can add the URL of the RSS feed if we know it. Sorry for the mistake!


Thanks to a post on the RSS Compendium Blog, I’ve found a list of US newspapers with RSS feeds. Out of that list, I’ve found that following Texas papers:

I had no idea this many Texas newspapers were providing RSS — this is great! When you look through the list, you see both large and small towns — even better!

FYI — this list is provided Wiki-style which means that anyone can add information to it. Keep that in mind when you check for your paper — the information may or may not be correct. Buyer beware . . .

    Actually, I think that page lists all major papers in the state… only a few of them have the famous orange XML icon to the right… the rest have an [Add] link to the right so site users can modify the list with their own contributions.

    According to that list, the only ones from Texas that have feeds right now are Dallas Morning News, Austin American-Statesman, Denton Record-Chronicle, Galveston County News, and Greenville Herald-Banner.

    For the Houston area, though, you can get your local and state headlines fix via RSS from a local TV station, KTRK: http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/features/abc13_rss.html

    Lukethelibrarian is right — I didn’t look into this far enough. I assumed the “Add” link was to add it to your aggregator, when in fact, it allows us to provide a link to the newspaper feed, if there is one. So, it looks like only a few newspapers provide RSS feeds . . . oh well. I’ll update the list so it is correct.

    You’re not the only one that’s been making this mistake… but you’re the only person who’s commented about it. I have been wondering why there are so many empty suggestions in the database. This explains it.

    I will change the “Add” text to “Update” this weekend.
