We’ve talked about local media recently – with the idea of 10,000 niche newspapers and our interview with John Geraci from local news aggregator Outside.in.

A site focusing on Chicago will roll out first, followed by a dozen more. The sites will aggregate news, sports, crime, arts and business news from different local sources including bloggers.
