About and Contact

KnoxTNToday.com was launched May 1, 2017, by Sandra Clark, Shannon Carey and others who previously worked at Shopper News in Knoxville, TN. The website is supported by seven strategic partners, dozens of community partners and direct mail.

We tell stories (mostly true), don’t like paywalls or pop-ups, and promote projects to build communities. We’re hyper-local, professional journalists who write for food (and fun).

Strategic Partners: We share logo links and guarantee category exclusivity.

Community Partners: We offer up to six logo links on each community page: Bearden, Farragut, Fountain City, Halls, Hardin Valley, Inside 640, Karns, Northeast Knox County, Powell and South Knox.  Contact Sandra Clark or Shannon Carey for questions/comments.

Direct Mail:
