About Us

Proud Highway Makes Communications WORK.


My name is Stephen C. Webster, and I am the founder of Proud Highway Media Group, a media consulting firm in Austin, Texas. I help small businesses and startups communicate their ideas effectively through advertising, social media campaigns, websites, press releases, custom content, and more. Proud Highway exists so that founders, inventors, and leaders can focus on their primary objective: Growth.

In my 16 years working as a journalist in print and online, I’ve landed my byline in hundreds of publications, including The Dallas Business JournalFort Worth WeeklyThe Dallas Morning NewsAustin MonthlyBusiness InsiderAlternetThe Huffington Post, and plenty more. There were lots of TV and radio appearances along the way, like “The Thom Hartmann Show,” “The Young Turks,” “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” “The Colbert Report,” “The Ed Schultz Show,” and “The Rachel Maddow Show,” to name the highlights.

As the former editor of The Raw Story, one of the top 2,000 websites in the United States with over 5 million monthly readers, I spent a lot of time focused on the world’s biggest problems. Eventually, the heaviest of humanity’s challenges became so clear to me that I could no longer sit back and spread information; I had to do something tangible to help fix it. So, in 2013, I took a risk and left a relatively secure, salaried position to join Vice President Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project, and never looked back. After that experience, I began to specialize in helping folks who are cutting carbon and saving energy. I created Proud Highway in 2014 as a natural outgrowth of my work with these same environmental startups.

Throughout my career, I have worked with thousands of creative professionals whose expertise runs the gamut. Only the best were invited to join my network of service providers, and now their talent is at your command. If you need a custom website, we’ve got you covered. Brand, venture, or other type of design? On it. Press release or ghost writing? No problem. Regular web content? Easy! Or, maybe you’re thinking of something bigger? We’re ready.
