New competitor for local sports departments
With newspapers cutting back, ESPN is getting into the local sports business. The "Worldwide Leader in Sports" says that next month it will launch ESPNChicago.com, a Web site that will focus not only on the pro and college ranks, but also high school sports. “We plan to cover high school sports as in-depth as possible,” ESPN VP of Digital Media Marc Horine tells Broadcasting & Cable. No word yet on when the concept will be rolled out to other markets.
