AbstractSince 2007, the list of metropolitan dailies that have closed their doors and ended their publication is astounding. In just three years the Tucson Citizen, Rocky Mountain News, Baltimore Examiner, Kentucky Post, Cincinnati Post, King Country Journal, Union City Register-Tribune, Halifax Daily News, Albuquerque Tribune, South Idaho Press and San Juan Star to name a few have all had to end operations (NewsPaperDeathWatch). It's no secret that this industry is faltering due to the disruptive push of the Internet as an online news source. However, as all of these major national publications begin to consolidate, local stories are getting left behind. HeardAround will capture this niche as the premiere, ultra-local online news source. HeardAround will hire writers, receive feeds from local sources, and allow user content that is filtered by an editorial staff to offer credible ultra-local news, at the neighborhood level, online.
