WestportNow.com

Cyberjournalists.net profiles Gordon Joseloff, a former CBS News and UPI foreign correspondent, who has used blogware to create an online news publication about his hometown of Westport, Connecticut. A very affluent community of 26,000 people, Westport has weekly and semi-weekly printed newspapers, but no dailies covering it well. Its residents’ high per capita income means that a very high percentage of their homes have computers with high-speed Internet access. Joseloff’s effort, WestportNow, is an example of how a professional reporter online can single-handledly create a serious news competitor to local weekly newspapers.
