Local News Sites Form New Trade Association

By: Hazel Sheffield | Columbia Journalism Review

Next month, at the annual Block by Block conference for local news sites, around 100 independent publishers will celebrate the launch of a new nonprofit trade group that will offer support for the growing hyperlocal news industry.
 
Local Independent Online News Publishers (LION) will be chaired by Dylan Smith of the TucsonSentinel.com and has been partly funded by a grant from the Patterson Foundation.
