With a deep-seeded commitment to San Francisco and the likely return of some of the expert content producers from the original SFist, Impress3 is poised to relaunch the renowned local news site in early 2019.

The news industry has been in flux for the past decade. Local news has been losing its foothold as a staple of American society as thousands of regional publications have closed or merged in recent years. Impress3 Media seems to have found a model that bucks this trend. A company founded in San Francisco by S.F. natives, Impress3 has been using an advanced software to help its writers, editors, podcasters, and video producers create widely appreciated digital media across the internet. It is with this strategy that the Impress3 team intends to relaunch SFist, a popular local news site for the San Francisco Bay Area.

In an additional announcement, Impress3 has set a goal to reinstate a number of the members of the original team behind the SFist to generate content for the relaunched platform. The founders of Impress3, all of whom have expressed a deep, personal dedication to bringing SFist back to life, have put out an invitation to any previous SFist writers who have an interest in once again contributing to the news organization.

“We hope to hear from a lot of the old writers of SFist, and we’ve already been speaking with one of the editors from the past team,” says an Impress3 spokesperson.

With a deep-seeded commitment to San Francisco and the likely return of some of the expert content producers from the original SFist, Impress3 is poised to relaunch the renowned local news site in early 2019.

Impress3 has been the driving force behind its parent company’s recognition as one of the top 50 best entrepreneurial ventures of 2018 by Entrepreneur, the #20 fastest growing software company of 2017 on Inc 5000, an appearance on the San Francisco Fast 100 on Business Journals, and its founder’s acceptance on the Forbes Technology Council.
