The Huffington Post is moving to launch local news & politics coverage with this recent launch of HuffPost Chicago – according to a post on The Inquisitr:
Huffington Post has gone local with the launch of HuffPost Chicago.
The localization of the site, which was announced by founder Arianna Huffington in June this year during the Future of Journalism event staged by the Guardian newspaper, is a move that shows the company’s direction towards covering all news, not only politics.
Huffington Post is one of the largest blogs on the internet today — their move into local coverage should pose a challenge for some local news coverage in both online and print media.
