Bham Now is a privately-held news website which describes itself as “the mobile, modern guide to Birmingham.” The site, founded in August 2016 by Cindy Martin, covers topics ranging from medical research to local color profiles.
Bham Now uses a teal-colored depiction of a bearded man's face as the site's icon, described as "a modern, hipster Vulcan."
Bham Now serves approximately 136,000 unique visitors each month. The vast majority of visitors (>80%) use mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones. The website holds about 36,000 followers across all social media platforms.
Bham Now’s primary source of income is paid content. The site offers multiple types of coverage, ranging from posting content directly on behalf of clients to researching and writing content that a client wants to tie to its brand.
In addition to paid content, Bham Now hosts advertisements. This is notable because the site does not offload ad traffic to a syndicated network.
