OUR STORY

Vancouver Is Awesome is a community-minded online publication that shares everything about your city that makes it awesome and keeps you here, and we keep you up to speed on the news of the day.

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.

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 while supporting important causes.

We are a market leader in branded content, working with businesses who appreciate the value of our audience, who help to supply our readers with free content with no paywall.

Our website is complemented by one of the largest and most engaged social media presences in the province. Our Facebook page has over 170,000 Likes, our Twitter account has over 140,000 Followers, and our Instagram account has 80,000.

Our weekly podcast features guests who do awesome things in and for Vancouver, and aims to help residents get better acquainted with their city.

A few of the guests we’ve featured on the V.I.A. podcast: Michelle Eliot, Grant Lawrence, Corinne Lea, Joseph Planta, Kennedy Stewart, William B Davis, Erin Sousa, Andrea Warner

Our Vancouver WAS Awesome history book made it to #2 on the BC Bestsellers List. The followup BC WAS Awesome is in the works. We’ve released two seasons of a television show by the same name, which you can view episodes of here and on TELUS Optik.
