Ewan News
All the Latest. 24/7

About Us

Ewan News was created in March 2000 by Alyse, who runs ewanspotting.com. In Alyse’s own words:

I run ewanspotting.com and as Ewan’s career began to skyrocket, I knew I had to do something. It was becoming harder for me to keep up the news section properly. Then I saw Phil Metro. Inspiration struck. Wouldn’t it be awesome if there was one place on the Internet that fans could go to find out all the latest news about Ewan where several people contributed from different Ewan sites? Instead of going to 10 different Ewan sites, you would only need to visit one?

That’s the mission of this site. Ewan News will always be a work in progress. So far over 1.4 million unique visitors have checked in with Ewan News since its launch. This site has inspired other celebrity news sites and is considered the premiere source of up-to-date Ewan McGregor news on the web.

In October 2004, Alyse gave Ewan News over to Claude, webmistress of The Best of Ewan McGregor. She became involved with Ewan News a month after its launch.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. If you run a Ewan site and would like to use news items posted here, please provide credit to Ewan News. If you started a celebrity news site inspired by Ewan News, I’d love to hear about it. Please send me the URL so I may see it.

Ewan News was designed by NodeThirtyThree who provided the free template and was completely recoded by Claude, using much computer magic (standard Photoshop and HTML skills). It looks best at (at least)1024x768 resolution and requires a recent browser to enjoy some of the functions. I recommend Firefox. It’s safe, it’s fast and it’s free.

This site was originally hosted by Pitas.com. They were cool, but in late December 2012, without warning, they blocked everyone from making updates and they ignore Emails and tweets. That’s not cool.. Ewan News is now hosted at news.bestofewan.com.
