This month's Business Spotlight is the Cross Timbers Gazette. Get to know the newspaper that serves southern Denton County, including Argyle, from our Q&A with Publisher and CEO Max Miller!
How long has your business been serving Argyle?
The Cross Timbers Gazette was founded in 1979 and has been mailing to every Argyle home and business each month since at least 2002.
How does your business support Argyle businesses?
We offer local businesses many affordable ways to promote their services in print and online, and we support them through news articles and announcements in our publication.
What is an interesting fact about your business?
We began in 1979 as a newsletter called The Double Oak Gazette by a small group of determined volunteers to keep the town’s residents informed. It eventually became a one-woman operation. In 2002, the newspaper was renamed The Cross Timbers Gazette to reflect its growing circulation in Argyle and neighboring towns. I acquired the paper in 2006 and we are now the largest locally-owned newspaper in North Texas.
What would you like the residents of Argyle to know about your business?
We live here and take a vested interest in the well-being of our neighbors and local businesses. Our slogan is “Local Lives Here” and we try to live up to that every day with a hands-on approach to keeping our community informed and engaged.
