Austin's population is doubling about every 20 years.

KVUE is calling it Boomtown.

Tonight's edition of the KVUE Nightbeat at 10 p.m. looks at Austin’s past and future in the premiere of what we’re calling a Live Documentary.

"Boomtown: KVUE Live Doc" airs Thursday at 10 p.m.

Follow KVUE on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat (@kvuenews) for updates and behind the scenes views of this special show.

And we want to know what you think about Austin's growth. Tag #Boomtown to join the conversation.
