News and information consumers in Larchmont, Mamaroneck and Lower Westchester are way ahead of the curve when it comes to hyperlocal media. A recent article in Time Magazine
makes clear what many of you have known since 2007- dedicated hyperlocal sites like theLoop are replacing the traditional role of the newspaper: fully supported local news, information and opinion from people who know the area.
Your editrix participated in the News Entrepreneur Boot Camp Tracy Record references in the Time piece (Tracy’s site in Seattle is a true original) and the editrix will also be speaking at that Block by Block Conference in Chicago in September.
All over the U.S., entrepreneurial journalists consider our local area to be truly pioneering in this way. And, by participating and creating the beehive of activity that is theLoop, you (and we) have only our readers to thank.
