I mentioned a month or so ago, that ESPN was launching a city-specific website for Chicago, and it was launched yesterday. There is a column by Scoop Jackson featured, all Chicago-based news and even a complete Sports Center entirely devoted to the city. Oh and they even got Chris Berman to host it!
While the undertaking is certainly impressive, it makes you wonder even more about the state of newspapers in the Windy City, and why they couldn't pull something like this off. Obviously time will tell if people respond to it, but it doesn't look good for print in Chicago.
