Vancouver Is Awesome is a community-minded online publication dedicated to showcasing to residents all of the great things that keep them here, despite the bad. We keep you in the loop as to what’s happening in your city and specialize in honing in on positive stories, aiming to inspire you to enjoy life here as well as getting out and making it even more awesome than it already is.
Founded in 2008 by Bob Kronbauer, our award-winning publication was acquired by Glacier Media in September of 2017, with Kronbauer staying on as Editor in Chief. We continue to be the authority on all-things-awesome in Vancouver.
In addition to our regular editorial, we sponsor local organizations such as the Vancouver Heritage Foundation, Reconciliation Canada and the Vancouver Public Library to publish engaging local content that nobody else has, while supporting important causes. We also specialize in creating and publishing sponsored content with companies who appreciate the value of our audience, and of helping to supply our readers with free content with no paywall.
Our website is supported by one of the largest and most engaged social media presences in the city. Our Facebook page has over 158,000 Likes and is ripe with engagement from our readers. Our @VIAwesome Twitter account has over 130,000 Followers and has been consistently cited as one of the top three to follow in Vancouver. Our Instagram account has 75,000 followers.
We co-published a history book called Vancouver WAS Awesome which made it to #2 on the BC Bestsellers List, and the followup BC WAS Awesome book is coming out on Arsenal Pulp Press in 2018. We are on our second season of our television show by the same name, which you can view episodes of here and on TELUS Optik.
