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: Abilene Reporter-News Alice Echo-News Amarillo Angleton Times Arlington News Athens Review Austin American-Statesman Baytown Sun Beaumont Enterprise Borger News-Herald Brenham Banner Press Brownsville Herald Brownwood Bulletin Bryan-College Station Eagle Canyon News Cleburne Times-Review Clute Facts Corpus Christi Caller-Times Corsicana Sun Dallas Morning News Del Rio News Herald Denton Record-Chronicle El Paso Times Ft. Worth Star-Telegram Gainesville Register Galveston County News Greenville Herald-Banner Groesbeck Journal Valley Morning Star Henderson News Houston Chronicle Howe Enterprise Huntsville Item Jacksonville Progress Kerrville Times Kilgore News Herald Killeen Herald Laredo Times Longview News-Journal Lubbock Avalanche-Journal Lufkin News Marshall News Messenger McAllen Monitor Midland Reporter-Telegram Mineral Wells Index Mount Pleasant Tribune Nacogdoches Sentinel New Braunfels Herald Zeitung Odessa American Palestine Herald-Press Pampa News Paris News Pecos Enterprise Plainview Herald Plano Star Courier Port Arthur News Rosenberg Herald-Coaster San Angelo Standard-Times San Antonio Express-News San Marcos Record Seguin Gazette-Enterprise Sherman-Denison Herald Democrat Stephenville Empire-Tribune Sweetwater Reporter Temple Telegram Terrell Tribune Texarkana Gazette Tyler Telegraph Victoria Advocate Waco Tribune-Herald Weatherford Democrat Wichita Falls Times Record News 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.
