Thank You, Next Avenue Readers

Next Avenue celebrates six years of serving adults over 50

We are celebrating six years since Next Avenue launched in 2012. From the moment of its first publication, advocates, researchers, thought leaders, innovators, writers and experts have helped to place Next Avenue at the forefront of issues related to aging by providing thoughtful, engaging content on issues that matter most to America’s aging population.

More than 100 million Americans are over the age of 50, which makes the mission of Next Avenue more relevant and prescient than ever. At launch in 2012, Next Avenue provided its original journalism, free of charge, to 90 affiliated public-media stations. Since then, Next Avenue has expanded to offer content to all public-media stations, plus other businesses and organizations in the longevity market, to deliver quality content to their communities. Currently, Next Avenue has 1 million unique visitors to its site each month and publishes an average of 20 to 25 articles each week.

The team at Next Avenue plans to grow its service and reach in the years ahead. “America’s baby boomers are collectively redefining what it means to be 60 or 70 years old. Next Avenue is with them in that journey — providing research, inspiration and advice for how to navigate this new phase of life,” says Next Avenue co-founder and Twin Cities PBS President and CEO, Jim Pagliarini.

Thank you for taking this journey with us!
